Narrowleaf Vallisneria (Vallisneria nana) is a very attractive, yet hardy and undemanding plant that is ideal for the background of the small to the medium aquarium. It is a very popular plant species in the aquarium hobby due to its ease of care and durability. It is a perfect background plant that will often grow all the way to the top of the aquarium and it propagates prolifically.
Narrowleaf Vallisneria is a member of the tape grass plant family. It can grow up to 20 inches tall and it provides a valuable refuge for timid fish and fry, which will actually encourage those shy species to venture into the open more often. Narrowleaf Vallisneria should be planted with its crown above the substrate. It will establish strong roots and is unlikely to be uprooted by bottom-dwelling fish. Its leaves should not be trimmed, as they will typically rot and fall off when damaged.
