Shaving Brush

These easy to care for marine plants grow in sandy substrates and have excellent filtration capacity for nitrates and phosphates. The plant actually resembles a green shaving brush that is used to apply shaving cream. Long thin leaves extend from the center stalk creating that brush or feather like appearance. It's an attractive addition to your fish tank or aquarium or refugium. They do require a nice amount of light for healthy growth and will benefit from the addition of calcium and iron supplements. Herbivorous fish will not consume Shaving Brush plants, however there are some sea urchins may actually feed on these plants.

    Product was packed well, arrived a little chilly, but then again it was 37 degrees here. Look good in the tank, only been a couple of day, we'll see. I ordered 3 total expecting one of each that was avaiable, but alas, I recieved 3 of the same kind.

    With the understandably high over night cost, which I'm OK with, I probably will not order again, without knowing exactly what I'm getting when I order, sorry.

    2 slightly different plants arrived, both attractive and in good shape. Adds more of a showy look to my tank. Love it.
