Hygrophila corymbosa 'angustifolia'

Hygrophila corymbosa 'angustifolia' is a great choice for background areas of the planted aquarium.  Long slender leaves wave in the current, creating a pleasing look.  Hygrophila corymbosa 'angustifolia' is one of the many different Hygrophila corymbosa varieties available in the aquarium trade. It is a very hardy plant that does well even in "fish tanks" tanks without supplemental CO2 or any special care.

The name is a bit confusing, because there is a species from Australia, properly named Hygrophila angustifolia.  But at this time, virtually all the long leafed Hygrophila in the hobby outside of Australia is a type of H. corymbosa
