Who doesn’t like Vallis? If I cast my mind back it was one of the first plants I grew extremely well by doing…nothing. In fact it grew like a weed and provided a wonderful curtain effect that made me feel like a pro :) I’m not sure which specific Vallis it was but it was dead easy. In fact the entire Vallis range is very simple to grow and unless you have very soft water you won’t have any problems.
There are currently 5 different types available – all similar (ish) with a variant. Let’s start with the biggest first:
Vallisneria gigantea rubra – large thick and wide leaves that grow fast. Great for bigger tanks and the leaves can grow up to about 2m (impressive heh!).
Vallisneria spiralis – suitable for beginners and up, this plant has narrow long leaves that look rather attractive. Grows in pretty much any tank.
In this case, they go bigger, MUCH BIGGER than the competition and this is just what Takashi Amano has done again. You see, no one can really touch him now as he has become such a powerful and dominant world leader in aquascaping. Most don’t even have the access to the large stones and the tanks and the team required to pull these sort of tanks off. So sit back, and enjoy.
I really love this tank, not only for its simplicity but also because it’s predominantly made up of plants on wood. This style and choice of plants always means you can create an aquascape very quickly.
That’s right, we’re shipping orders right up to the end of day (well nearly anyway). 4pm is the latest our courier can collect so that means if you order today any time before 4pm and choose express delivery at the check out, you can receive your order the next day (assuming you’re UK mainland).
