Plant Suggestion (5-10 gallon)
Could anyone suggest a relatively small "grassy" background plant similar in looks to Hygrophila Angustifolia (Willow Hygro). Preferably a rooted plant, and preferably a thicker leaf looking grassy plant (Not a hairgrass or the like).
The plant database I usually use has been down for a week or so and I haven't been able to find much online.
Thanks for any suggestions or comments =D
I'm only familiar with stem plants in this shape. For substrate rooted plants, I have used Vallisneria, chain sword, and the smaller swords like Echinodorus amazonicus (see profile of Echinodorus bleherae).
I actually just stumbled across Narrow Leaf Java Fern, not sure why I did't think of that before. I've had plenty of success with getting Java Fern to grow in the substrate rather than on wood or rock. Trick is to find them tall enough for what I'm looking for. Most places sell them smallish.
Thanks for the suggestions ^,^
something cheap and spreads nicely is dwarf sag. It can grow tall if it gets a lot of nutrients and sends out runners.
Dwarf Sagittaria (Sagittaria subulata)
