In Conclusion

This plant is at a medium grow level. Medium level usual requires that your tank need to make some minor adjustment to accommodate for the dwarf hairgrass. The temperature is a little bit warmer. In some cases liquid CO2 and liquid fertilizer is required. However, these are very friendly to fish. I always find my guppies resting inside the grass. In the right environment, this plant will multiply and create very beautiful carpet.
