Hydrocotyle leucocephala is a popular aquarium name that is often sold under the common name of Brazilian Pennywort.  Hydrocotyle leucocephala makes an excellent background plant and provides a unique texture with many large round green leaves.  Brazilian Pennywort can tolerate a wide range of lighting conditions, and does very well even without supplemental CO2, making it a good choice for all levels of aquarium keepers.  It is particulary good in fry tanks, where the fine roots give excellent cover for baby fish.
