Najas guadalupensis, commonly known as Guppy Grass, is a popular aquatic plant species highly regarded for its versatility and aesthetic appeal. This submerged plant is native to North and Central America, specifically found in regions such as Texas, Mexico, and the Caribbean.

Guppy Grass is a versatile plant that can thrive in a variety of aquatic setups, making it an excellent choice for both beginners and experienced aquarists. It features long, slender stems with whorls of bright green leaves that provide an attractive and natural look to any aquarium.

One of the remarkable aspects of Najas guadalupensis is its rapid growth rate. It is known for its ability to propagate quickly, making it an ideal choice for those seeking to create lush, densely planted aquariums. The dense growth also provides a safe and comfortable habitat for fish, fry, and other small aquatic organisms, making it a favorite among breeders.

In addition to its aesthetic qualities, Guppy Grass offers several benefits to the aquarium ecosystem. It serves as a natural water purifier by absorbing excess nutrients, helping to prevent algae growth and maintain water quality. The dense vegetation also provides shelter for shy or vulnerable fish, contributing to their overall well-being.

Caring for Najas guadalupensis is relatively straightforward. It thrives in a wide range of water parameters, although it prefers slightly alkaline to neutral conditions with a pH range of 6.5 to 7.5. Lighting requirements can be moderate to high, and providing a nutrient-rich substrate or supplementing with liquid fertilizers can enhance its growth and vibrancy.

Due to its fast growth, regular trimming and maintenance may be necessary to prevent overgrowth and maintain the desired appearance in the aquarium. Propagation is simple, as Najas guadalupensis readily produces side shoots that can be separated and replanted to expand its presence in the tank or share with fellow aquarists.

If you're looking to add a versatile, visually appealing, and beneficial plant to your aquarium, Najas guadalupensis, or Guppy Grass, is an excellent choice. Its rapid growth, ease of care, and ability to enhance the overall health of your aquatic environment make it a favored selection among aquarists. Discover the beauty of Guppy Grass and introduce it to your aquarium today.

            Guppy Grass

            Nice portion, heathy stems. So far no melt.


            To small size



            Guppy Grass

            Healthy, generous bunches. They are about 6 inches long and had no hitchhikers, though I still dipped. Aquarium Plants Factory has become my only source of plants.


            It had bladder snails. Didn’t really want them in my aquarium but I’m probably stuck with them now. Other than that it was fine.
