Looking For a UnderWater Grass?
Ive seen countless pictures of FW tanks with the bottom completley covered with this stuff that looks like grass but under water.
I really want to have my tank bottom covered with plants. Any Suggestions ? The grow pattern im looking for is short (but dont mind trimming) Fast growing Plant that covers Almost or all of the bottom of the tank. Thrives in 6,500k lightning. I Use Ferts but dont wana mess with a CO2 System unless i really have to. Thanks in advance.
Also if i have my light on for a longer time does that make the Plants grow faster?
check out swordgrass or dwarf swordgrass.
no leaving the lights on longer will only cause algae to grow faster. in a planted tank your going to want your lights on for 6-8 hours
What about Hair grass?
What about it?
How well does Hair Grass or Micro Sword Grass Grow?
I don't know about growth rates on hair or micro sword grass but I do have guppy grass and it grows like a weed. I love it and think my fish do too!
Auntie You Should post Pics. :D ITS MANDATORY WHEN YOU TALK ABOUT YOUR lovely tank.
Hummm. You're right. I do have tank pics posted but I realize they don't show the guppy grass. I'm going to try and take some pics tonight of the grass. I like the guppy grass cuz it grows planted or floating and it's bullet proof. At least so far....
try looking up chain swords. These things will spread out eventually on their own in various clumps, it looks quite nice after a couple of months of good growth.
With that lighting you can have anything you want! Look @ www.aquariumplants.com under ground cover microsword narrow leaf is my fav and probably the most reliable and no trimming.Dwarf hair is expert level and wont tolerate shade from another plant, now dwarf subslata is a LL weeping 3-5" hard to get going, if you like fast growing or instant beauty microsword is good and it's sold in 6 or12" sq.inch pieces for easy planning. AP is the least expensive.
