What Our Customers Say

Description: Egeria Najas, commonly known as Guppy Grass, is a delicate and versatile aquatic plant appreciated for its graceful appearance and ease of care. As a member of the Hydrocharitaceae family, this submerged plant is native to South America but has become popular among aquarium enthusiasts worldwide. Egeria Najas is characterized by its fine, branching stems covered in closely spaced, needle-like leaves. Its flexible and flowing nature makes it a favorite choice for aquascaping, providing both aesthetic appeal and practical benefits to freshwater aquariums.

Growing Information:

1. Lighting: Egeria Najas is adaptable to a wide range of lighting conditions, from low to high. However, providing moderate to high lighting promotes more robust growth and vibrant green coloration.

2. Substrate: While Guppy Grass can be planted in the substrate, it is commonly left to float in the water. If planted, a nutrient-rich substrate or the use of root tabs can support its nutritional needs.

3. CO2 and Nutrients: Egeria Najas can thrive in low to medium CO2 environments. It absorbs nutrients from the water, but supplementing with a liquid fertilizer ensures optimal growth and health.

4. Pruning: Regular pruning helps control its growth and prevents excessive shading of other aquarium plants. Simply trim the stems to the desired length using scissors. Floating stems create a natural and decorative effect.

5. Water Parameters: Maintain stable water parameters with a temperature range of 64-82°F (18-28°C), a slightly acidic to slightly alkaline pH between 6.0-7.5, and moderate water hardness.

6. Placement: Egeria Najas can be placed as a floating plant or anchored in the substrate. It is suitable for background planting or as a midground and background floating plant. Its flowing nature adds a sense of movement to the aquarium.

7. Propagation: Propagate Egeria Najas through stem cuttings. Simply trim a healthy section of the stem and replant it into the substrate or allow it to float. The cuttings quickly develop roots and continue growing.

8. Benefits: Besides its decorative value, Guppy Grass is beneficial for aquariums as it absorbs excess nutrients, provides hiding places for fry, and enhances water oxygenation.

9. Challenges: Egeria Najas is generally an undemanding and hardy plant. It can become invasive in optimal conditions, so regular pruning is necessary to maintain its shape and prevent overgrowth.

Egeria Najas, with its delicate and flowing nature, adds a touch of elegance to aquariums. Whether floating freely or planted strategically, Guppy Grass enhances the visual appeal of freshwater tanks, making it a popular choice for aquarists seeking both beauty and practical benefits in their aquatic landscapes.
