    I really am interested in this plant and could anyone give me some information on this plant?

    Hi Fishboy123,

    I recently started keeping a similar plant of the same species; Nymphaea micrantha. The species seems to like good lighting, regular nutrients, softer water, and it does well even with medium-high circulation. What I like about Nymphaea micrantha is the plant is viviparous with 'baby' plants formed in the center of the adult leaves.

    That's very cool I might go with a banana plant because it's still a lily but a tiger lotus probably won't grow well in a 10 gallon. Thank you for the info!
