Dwarf Hairgrass Eleocharis acicularis is an aquatic plant, great for creating a lush, green base in your aquarium. This plant helps maintain water clarity by absorbing excess nutrients from the water. Its low-growing nature and ability to spread rapidly with CO2 make it a great option for aquascaping!
Dwarf Hairgrass is an extremely popular aquatic plant, offering a lawn-like foreground plant that is easy and low maintenance. In aquariums without CO2 injection it can be used as a midground plant that offers patches of grasslike foliage that are unique and beautiful. In aquariums with CO2 it can be used as a carpet, growing fast under medium or high light.
This Dwarf Hairgrass is sold in a plastic pot grown in rock wool. When planting this it is easiest to remove the Hairgrass from the rock wool and plant them in small groups. If planted as one large group you will not see the growth or carpeting effect desired. Be sure to remove all rock wool from your plants to prevent any issues in your aquarium.

All three Green Jade Mystery Snails were dead. I opened the box and floated their bag in my aquarium for about an hour. Opened bag and allowed them to sink to the bottom. After about 30 hours on the bottom it was obvious they were DOA! Last time I will try to purchase online with live product.
