2. Growth Habit:

5. Benefits:
   Apart from its aesthetic appeal, Subwassertang provides numerous benefits to the aquarium ecosystem. It serves as a natural shelter and hiding place for fish and invertebrates, reducing stress and promoting a healthier environment. Additionally, it helps maintain water quality by absorbing excess nutrients and competing with algae for resources.
