 Hi,
 
 Does  any  one  have  any  experience  keeping  Lagenandra  in  the  aquarium.  What  i  want  to  know  is  if  there  is  any  small  species  of  laganendra?   Can  we  tie  it  up  to  drift  wood  like  Anubias?

 What  kind  of  lighting  are  you  using

 Hi  P,
 
 1.  Yes,  I  am  keeping  ┬áLagenandra  Meeboldii  -  Red.  
 
 2.  So  many  verities  available  like  ┬áLagenandra  green,  red,  hi  red,  variegated,  giant  and  so  on.  To  the  best  of  my  knowledge,  there  is  no  dwarf  variety.  ┬áBut  not  sure.
 
 3.  Dont  tie  on  driftwood.  
 
 Grows  very  fast  when  compare  to  anubias  and  covers  most  of  the  tank  with  larger  leaves  and  best  suits  to  larger  tanks.  With  very  little  care  it  is  still  growing  nicely.
 
 
 4.  presently  its  height  is  1.5  ft  in  my  tank.     (With  optimum  condition  sizes  may  reduce  too).
 
 5.  Light  t5  60  watts  tube  -  2  nos  just  for  4  hours   switching  on   (morning  2  hours  and  evening  2-3  hours).
 
 thanks
 ashok

 I  have  kept  three  varieties  of  lagenandra.  Nairii  is  pretty  small.  
 
 Its  very  hardy  and  grows  almost  in  any  condition.  IMO  the  smaller  ones  require  more  care.

 @  Ashok,  At  18  inches  the  plant  is  going  to  be  too  big  for  my  plans.
 
 @  Navneeth,  the  Nairii  seems  to  be  the  right  size,  but  looks  like  it  is  going  to  be  too  Expensive,  I  was  planning  to  buy  about  15-20  plants  to  go  into  a  snakehead  tank

 Navneeth,
 
 Thanks  for  the  suggestion.I  will  try  toxicaria.  What  is  the  usual  size  it  grows  to?  I  am  thinking  of  planting  it  in  gravel.  I  cant  have  any  other  substrate  in  a  Channa  tank

 The  ones  I  usually  get  for  the  studio  have  a  leaf  size  of  2-2.5  inch  and  once  they  root  to  the  soil  the  rhizome  extends  its  length.  Once  it  finds  a  piece  of  wood  it'll  engulf  it  and  even  escape  out  of  the  tank  but  this  of  course  is  a  slow  process  but  the  final  look  will  be  amazing  and  natural.
 
 And  for  channa  I  suggest  also  using  aponogeton  and  giant  echinodorus.

 I  finally  got  lagenandra  toxicaria  and  planted  it  last  week.  The  ones  in  the  tank  with  laterite  substrate  all  have  new  leaves.  I  tied  one  down  to  a  rock  like  an  anubias  plant.  Trying  to  experiment  a  bit.????
 This  is  starting  to  put  out  a  new  leaf.  The  growth  seems  comparitively  slower.
 
 I  will  try  and  log  the  growth  of  this  plant.  If  it  grows  well  with  out  access  to  a  substrate  then  might  turn  it  into  a  poor  mans  anubias  variety  ROFL   ROFL   ROFL   ROFL

 Lagenandra  nairii  is  the  smallest  one  in  the  trade  but  it  seems  to  be  difficult  to  keep  them  in  submerse  conditions.  I  have  a  couple  in  my  vivarium  which  are  doing  good.
 While  planting  just  ensure  the  rhizome  is  not  buried  under  the  substrate.  I  zip  tie  the  rhizome  to  a  small  stone  and  bury  the  stone  into  the  sand  with  the  rhizome  outside.
