"Low" growing, its about 6" tall typically. But it does grow sideways preferentially.

The more you clip and replant hygrow, the leaves will get smaller. I use it as a foreground plant in almost all my tanks. Also, that Denasonii barb might want a bigger tank to live in as they are very active swimmers and schoolers.
