Shaving Brush plant is named for its unique resemblance to the Barbers Shaving Brush tool. The rooted plant should be buried in the substrate for maximum growth as well as medium lighting and flow. Plants are an excellent addition to the saltwater tank as they will reduce nitrates naturally. By reducing nitrates they naturally out compete the nuisance algae for nutrients which will reduce the appearance and quantity of nuisance algae.

Customer Reviews
dan of south eastern ohio
quality
I took advantage of this bogo offer and added it to a clean up crew pack giving me 3 shaving brushes. The quality is great and they totally compliment my tank.
Ann of Arizona
Shaving brush
Our two shaving brushes are wonderful. In less than two months one has three and the other four new plants sprouting. Our blenny loves to sit on it and the emerald crab cleans the whole top, he even hangs upside down to clean underneath and the stem is tough enough to not bend.
Jay of Syosset , NY
shaving brush
Arrived looking good very large like 7-8" including root. Advertised as B1G1F but I only got the one, size makes up for it and mine looks like its splitting so one day I'll have my free one I guess lol.

shaving brush
Great condition. Healthy and came very fast. Great prices too.
NancyL of Pacific NW
Shaving Brush
Cool looking and came very healthy. I have an overpopulation of snails and my survival rate of my pods was better than anticipated and they made short work of this plant in a few weeks. At least they had a tasty treat- will order more when fuge set up. It did really well holding it's footing in my shallow sand bed- I was surprised I didn't have to brace it.

shaving brush plant
This plant has a really unique look and movement. It also makes my conch happy; whenever I see him, he is picking at it (but he hasn't destroyed it or moved it - it is hearty).
Mike of Rochester, NY
Shaving Brush Plant
Doing awesome, look great and add a nice touch to my reef tank
Kevin Harris of Houston, TX
Shaving Brush
Nice quality plants. Plant them in your sand bed and watch them grow. Trace elements help growth.
Sarah of Riverview, FL
Neat plant
Ordered one and it is doing great. Just stuck it in a little mound of sand and let it do it's thing. Could see new growth on it a few days after.
