Java fern, Microsorium pteropus, is known for its ability to tolerate low light levels and for not being eaten by many fish. While it is not supposed to taste good, no one told my goldfish who ate the plant I put in with them years ago. Most other fish leave it alone. Java fern is a fern that will produce spores and often baby plants right on the leaf. This plant does okay in my tanks with moderate light, soft water, and temperatures in the low 70's. It is very slow growing. Leaves can grow pretty large but then tend to rot and die, often with "babies" growing on them at that point. The small ramshorn snails in my tanks seem to enjoy "chewing" on it but the plant seems only minorly affected. thankyou for asking. :)
