Benefits of the Micro Sword Pot (Lilaeopsis novae-zelandiae) - Medium Size Live Aquarium Plant
The Micro Sword plant is known by many names, including Micro Sword Grass, Brazilian Micro Sword, Copragrass, and Carpet Grass. This plant is perfect to protecting guppy fry by offer ample hiding places. It is a very interesting-looking aquatic carpeting plant that always looks excellent in the foreground of aquariums. Micro Sword grass strands are thicker and shinier in appearance than hairgrass, but it grows just as fast and can give your aquarium a similar serene, prairie-like look.
Micro Sword grass is known to grow extremely fast under the right water conditions and is capable of quickly carpeting the floor of your aquarium. It grows much taller than other carpeting plants, making it excellent for providing cover for shrimp, fish, or any other critters that might dwell in your tank. It may require trimming back due to its speed of growth, especially in set-ups with high-intensity lighting. Interestingly, Micro Sword grass can thrive whether it's partially or fully immersed in water.
This plant ships as a pot that is about 1" to 2" wide, and the grass length is 2" to 3" tall. Ideal water parameters include a temperature range of 70°-83°F with a pH level of 6.8 to 7.5. If you want your Micro Sword to grow quickly, water with high amounts of nutrients is vital.
Live plants have many agricultural uses, such as removing waste and excess nutrients from hydroponic systems, fighting algae and bacterial growth in farm ponds, and keeping educational aquariums clean. This plant also provides shelter for guppy female fish.
