Ceratophyllum demersum is one of the most popular aquarium and pond plants in the trade.  Hornwort, or Coontail as it is more commonly referred to, is able to tolerate a wide range of aquatic conditions including low levels of salt.   Hornwort does not grow true roots, so float the plant near the surface or gently wrapping it around pieces of hardscape.  Hornwort makes a great "nursery" for baby fish.
