This little plant is relatively new to the hobby. It has very distinctive triangular leaves 7mm in length that look like thorns. It grows in tufts and sometimes develops new branches.

The growth is very slow with new leaves being brighter than older ones. It needs at least medium light levels and good CO2. It can be used for midground in nano aquascapes or as a carpet.
