DenverTankCollector Guppy grass is very easy to grow. It is brittle, but each piece can become a new plant. If you buy one stem, you will end up with several plants. It will grow rooted if you push the end into the sand, or it will grow floating. It makes great hiding places for baby fish, it can get very dense. It varies from a light green color to a red/tan color, depending on the light. Because it is brittle it can be messy, when you clean a tank it gives you lots of new sprouts, big fish tend to break it off if they get tangled. Try it, you will like it.

I am not set up to ship, but someone should have some extra near you. If anyone has guppy grass, in a few months they will have extra.

Any one near this person who can help them out???

Water Lettuce, Pistia stratiotes and other plants

I am overrun by Water Lettuce (Pistia stratiotes), Java Moss, guppy grass (Najas guadalupensis) and Anacharis (Elodea or Egeria). The water lettuce is tank raised and is a magnificent tank cleaner, In the tank it stays smaller, huge root system, and it spreads very well. I just put some outside on my koi ponds and I have a lot left over in my tanks. I also have young mystery snails, red cherry shrimp, and Riccia Fluitans or Crystalwort. I have young Marble Veil, Silver veil and 1/2 black veil angel fish (1/2 to 1 1/2 inch) and several species of rare livebearers such as: Butterfly Goodeid (Ameca Splendens), Humpback Limia (Limia nigrofasciata), Knife Livebearer (Alfaro Cultratus), and some terrific Sunset Platys and red wag platys. All Denver tank raised and acclimated. I also have several large HOB filters that are surplus to my system.

If I had cats instead of fish they would label me a "hoarder" and lock me up. Do you have room in your tanks for some of my overflow? Lets make a deal!

The Denver Tank (and fish and plants) Collector, 33 tanks and counting!
