Aquarium - the embodiment of their own ideas about the beautiful underwater world, floristry or art, expressed by the imagination of a person by combining in a limited space a variety of materials created by nature.
The most bizarre, colorful landscape of the underwater kingdom can not do without green spaces, setting up calm, lyrics.
Unpretentious, spectacular, capable of benefiting by visually observed tiny air bubbles that dissolve in water, enriching with oxygen, Wallisneria gained fame and popularity.
The original perennial plant, characterized by a spiral shape, rarely found in the circle of brothers, has long been loved by experienced aquarists, young beginners will like it.
It is not difficult to reach agreement with representatives living in a home pond, taking into account the peculiarities, food preferences of everyone. You won’t be disappointed by the picture of eating fish like yourself or plants.
Viviparous fish will be useful for vallisneria: swordsmen, guppies, mollies, all who prefer filamentous algae. Herbivores will endanger the peaceful coexistence. Some species of cichlids are not averse to feasting on young shoots; during the spawning period they mow the spawning ground.
It prefers conditions resembling native subtropics with slightly acidic, medium hard medium, temperature 24-28 degrees. It easily tolerates a slight "cooling". In nature, the distribution area has expanded to a temperate zone. It is found in some regions of the country.
The prolonged influence of cold conditions, lack of light will not affect the appearance in the best way, and subsequently lead to the death of the plant.
Compliance with the conditions of detention, correct, with a predominance of upper twelve-hour lighting stimulate growth year-round, can reach a length of up to 70 centimeters. A longer exposure to artificial “sun” will lead to the growth of blue-green algae.
A tall hydrophyte is planted in the background or in the corners of the aquarium. When overgrown, it is thinned out, but not pruned. Thickening undesirably affects spiral wallisneria, adjacent plants lack of nutrition, lighting.
Carrying out weekly prophylaxis with a partial change of water (not more than a third of the total volume), if necessary, remove part of the stands recognized as old, non-decorative. The free space helps to stimulate the growth of a prolific pet, other green pets.
When buying plants, we discard old specimens with broken leaves, yellowed, rotted or too overgrown roots, cut during planting in a new place. Additional fertilizer is not required. Natural sludge will serve as a top dressing, which is constantly replenished by living organisms (excrement).
The most common method of reproduction is the separation of numerous layers of fully formed, not needing food from the mother plant. Vegetation is rarely used, with a small amount of source planting material. Artificial confinement does not contribute to seed formation.
Being a biological filter, vallisneria absorbs suspended particles of aquarium “debris”, nitrogen and phosphorus compounds. Negative, depressing effect is rust. With caution, carry out disinfection, treatment of fish directly in the aquarium with antibiotics containing copper.
