    I know where I can get a bunch of Najas indica for free. But there's always the risk of introducing snails, damselfly nymphs, and other unwanted hitchhikers. I can get a bunch for you if you don't mind, or if you're able to quarantine the plants.

    Many thanks to Trichopsis for his generosity and kind help in collecting and passing the Najas Indica. Great guy!

    Actually I was looking for najas guadalupensis, I used to keep them before and they break off very easily and somehow did not do well under my care, or lack off. With najas Indica, it's a better plant to 'work with' as it does not break off that easily compared to its leaved Cousin guadalupensis. The Indica has needle shaped leaves and look like hornwort but it does not melt like hornwort. I might still look for guadalupensis as l like the fact that it can sit on the bottom of my bare tanks. Both najas are great plants for fry to hide

    Yah I've found that Najas indica does quite well in all sorts of conditions. It doesn't matter whether it's floating or rooted in the substrate. I've also had problems in the past with hornwort melting without reason, so I find Najas is a good alternative. Hope they do well!

    So far no melting from najas indica. I reckon their growth rate is pretty slow under low light low tech conditions but no complaints. Am very happy with this hornwort alternative.

    Sure! How much do you need? Would a small takeaway container be enough? You can PM me with details and we should probably be able to arrange to meet sometime next week.

    Also, I have to warn you, the plants might have small snails or damselfly nymphs hiding among them so it would be best if you could quarantine them for a while to make sure that you don't introduce any unwanted guests into your setups. I try my best to check and remove those that I find, but it would be good if you could also do another round of checks just in case.

    Re: Naja Grass

    I am looking for Najas Grass (Guppy grass) too. Checked with Green Chapter but boss there said he didn't know what that was. I think the plant shouldn't be expensive as it grew like weed in the tank. Some of the plants in SV look quite similar, unfortunately most Singapore LFS don't label them and I risked buying the wrong stuff.
