Bangladesh Biotope-Hygrophila stricta/corymbosa?


I am in the middle of complete revamps of both my tanks after a death spree hit my tanks (). I am doing research on a Bangladesh biotope to keep Zebra Danio and Dwarf Gourami. Well I found the only two plants that are found in moderation to be used in a biotope would be Hygrophila corymbosa and Blyxa japonica. Im just wondering if the H. corymbosa will be too large for a 10g tank? I read that the leaves can get up to 5 inches long!

If I were u i would use H.polysperma, java moss, branches a lot of leaves, and perhaps salvina natans as floating plant.

IMO the Hygrophila corymbosa will definitely outgrow a 10 gallon. I got this plant when it had 3 leaves and was 4 inches tall. 2 months later there are too many leaves to count and is growing out of my 55 gallon. If you want some of it I would be more then happy to send you some. Along with Blyxa japonica. Ive got both.

You could use that new dwarf Hygrophila that's going around.

I have a ten gallon with just Hygrophila sp. "Tiger" as the entire scape.

I can send you some clippings in a week if you want.

Actually, yes it is.

I didn't realize that. I have the old prejudice that Hygros are all from Southeast Asia. All the cool new ones seem to be from South America though. Of course, no one would know the difference if you told them otherwise.

LOL, I'll give it a shot though. It looks like a nice plant and definitely would be a nice addition. It would also give me a head start on a SA biotope lol.
