Shogun3041 Posted December 4, 2020 Share Posted December 4, 2020 Hi all, so recently I wanted to start a new 10 gallon tank, and I'm really eyeing on using Hygrophila to fill the background. However, after days of Google and Youtube, I can't seem to gather much comprehensive information on this species in general. All the information I found either missed certain data, or had conflicting info with another source. The only thing consistent across the board is that they are fast growing weeds. So I decided to come to the nerms for help! Here are some species/variations that caught my attention: Hygrophila Corymbosa Hygrophila Stricta Hygrophila Compacta Hygrophila Siamensis and Siamensis 53b (this one I'm most interested in) Hygrophila Angustifolia Hygrophila Salicifolia (Hygro Blue?) Some questions I have in mind: 1. Key appearance differences? (many species just look similar to me, or I don't know how they'll look once established) 2. Plant height and suitable tank size? (have a 10 gal, 12" tall tank) 3. Growth when dosed only with Easy Green and no root tab? 4. Some species say they make many "offshoots," does this mean runners, or the stem branches out? Many thanks in advance! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
