Eleocharis Montevidensis has a fresh grass green colour and grows to be 20-40cm high. It is basic and low maintenance. Each straw is only few millimeters thick and the plant maintains an open form of growth.
This plant is quite suitable as a background plant, and can further be planted in front and in the centre of the aquarium, in transparent wads, in order to create depth and perspective. The plant spreads through runners, which occasionally should be trimmed and maybe planted elsewhere. It really is a great addition to the aquarium and fish love swimming through it and around it.
