Beautiful, beautiful!

This Hornwort is growing like that's its job! I did try initially to make it grow in the bottom gravel like a conventional land plant, but it grows full and lushy all across the top of my tank like a green cloud. This suits my koi babies (bottom feeders) to a T. I am quite pleased.
