Hygroryza aristata is the only grass species used in aquariums. It
forms long, decorative roots providing good hiding-places for gouramies and
other surface fish which like the roots of floating plants. It is particularly
suitable for open aquariums. If growth is vigorous it must be pruned to prevent
it overshadowing the other plants.
