Crystalwort serves as a refuge for fry and a nest-building material for anabantids. In shallow, brightly lit aquariums, Crystalwort can be partially buried in the substrate and grown there. As a floating plant, Crystalwort needs frequent thinning. The tank should not have a strong water current because Crystalwort will be carried throughout the tank. Crystalwort is easily affected by algae.
