Hi TFF,

I want to get some small grass to dot in a few areas of my tank. ( near front )

I dont want it to spread like a carpet or grow really high. Does anyone know if there is such a grass that will suit what im looking for?

Thank you

Dwarf hairgrass in containers? But anubias nana petite would look good there.

No - but you can superglue it to a rock and bury most of the rock.

Dwarf hairgrass grows about 6” tall and spreads well. If you don’t want it to spread you can contain it in a pot. I have some in one of my tanks and it’s pretty easy to care for. You can trim the front, leaving it longer in the back to add some more visibility and dimension if you do let it spread. Just be aware if you have other plants it can outcompete them for nutrients and take over.

Thanks Guy's,

Does anyone know what Blyxa Japonica's
like for growth?

Might see if i can find some small pots to submerge in my sand like you suggested to stop the grass spreading.

Would something like these work? (Thinking there smaller than a pot)20190912_111652.jpg
