Echinodorus rubin, also known as Red Rubin, is an amphibious plant that has long red, brown and green leaves in its submerged state. When emerged from the water, the leaves will turn bright green in color. This is a great background plant that will add a variety of color and texture to your freshwater planted aquarium.
The Red Rubin is a relatively easy plant to maintain, but grows rather large in the aquarium. Use this plant as a background in the smaller aquarium, and as a mid-ground focal point in the larger aquarium. Do not allow the leaves of this plant to shade neighboring plants. It requires a moderate level of light of 2 to 3 watts per gallon provided by full spectrum (5000-7000K) bulbs.
Reproduction within this species is by adventitious plants, side shoots, and rhizome division. Simply allow the plant to reproduce by one of the above methods, and when the new plant forms its own leaves, separate and re-plant in another location of the aquarium. The Red Rubin is sensitive to copper, and this type of medication should not be added to the aquarium where it is contained.
The Red Rubin benefits from regular additions of CO2, iron rich fertilizers, and trace elements.
