In addition, Water Spangles remove heavy metals (including copper) very efficiently. Water Spangles/Salvinia Natans is phenomenal at removing ammonia, nitrites, phosphates and nitrates from the water column acting as an extension to your filtration system which is why it is so popular within the aquarium hobby.
