Heteranthera zosterifolia in my aquarium

Synonymies
Schollera zosterifolia, Heteranthera osteniana.

Description
A beautiful, fast growing stem plant. The leaves are tender and colored light-green. The plant forms many braches.

My experiences
In my aquarium the plant got, right after I bought them, some flowers. Although this plant grew pretty quick in my aquarium I only had it for a short time because it attracted a lot of (pointed) algae's.

Place and lighting in my aquarium
This plant stood in the right-back of my aquarium. The lighting I used at the time was a 0.42 Watt/liter lumilux TL lighting (2*18 Watt).
