Blyxa japonica is a plant that only grows under water. It is found in low ponds, swamps and slow-flowing forest streams with a high iron content in the subtropic and tropic zones of East and South-East Asia. It forms beautiful relatively low-growing to medium-high grasslike bushes with very narrow green to reddish leaves.
This Blyxa species is not overly difficult to cultivate if you fulfil some basic requirements: sufficient light (0.5 to 1 watt per litre or more), a CO2 supply and fertilisation with nitrate, phosphate, potassium and micronutrients. In an optimal environment and under sufficient light, the leaves will assume golden and reddish hues, and the plant will develop a more compact growth habit. Under insufficient light, Blyxa japonica has a higher, lankier growth habit and it is green in colour.
Blyxa japonica arrives in liquid solution inside the cup and contains leaves and roots which are brown and require cleaning before adding to the aquarium.
Dry goods are dispatched daily and can take 1 to 5 working days to arrive.
Live fish, live plants, and frozen food require 2 to 7 working days or more due to special handling requirements.
All our live stocks are thoroughly tested and quarantined before packing and guaranteed to arrive free of tapeworms or diseases.
Important to note that small tropical fish and inverts lose color during transport and will arrive pale or white, a proper environment and diet is needed to regain coloration.
Any death or illnss of live animals after being added to an aquarium cannot be replaced or refunded. If such problems are encountered then it is connected to aquarium conditions or noncompatible tank mates (e.g. mixing with fish or plants from other sources).
