Vallisneria

Size

Easy to grow plant. Spreads by runners. Grows very tall in an aquarium and can drape over the top to make fish feel secure. When it's well established you can get a new shoot as soon as every 3 days. Great for a community tank but also often used in Goldfish and African Cichlid tanks. I've written an article about Vallisneria as I love it so much! Vallisneria the One Plant Wonder

  • Scientific Name: Vallisneria spiralis

Overall good

I bought this plant and several others after following Aquarium Co-op online for quite some time. The Val came in good condition, even after sitting outside for several hours in a cold weather climate. There was quite a bit of die back (on all plants though not just the Val) and there were snails. I understand they do not guarantee their plants to be snail free. I can easily get rid of them myself if desired. I assume that in time the plants (Val and hopefully the others which were harder hit) will grow well. At this point I would buy this plant again barring some unforeseen die off.

The vall arrived healthy and tall! I have a 55 gallon Walmart setup and my vallisneria is already reproducing! My tank is deep and has the worst lighting you can probably get but it’s definitely growing! It also arrived all the way across the us in two days! Can’t beat that for 5-6 dollar shipping! I’ve ordered 5 pots of vall and it’s all thriving! I also have plain cheap gravel as substrate and it’s doing great. I just made sure I didn’t gravel vac where I planted it so it could use the waste for fertilizer! Seems to be working great for now. Probably add some root tabs as soon as it shows signs of slowing up!

Live Arrival Guarantee
We guarantee our live products will arrive alive. We ask that you do your part and minimize the amount of time our packages sit out in the elements. It can also be a good idea to avoid ordering live items during extreme temperatures. This would be when night time temps are below 35 and over 80 degrees during the day. Now these temps are not for sure death, it's just what makes it easiest for all of us during shipping.

When temperatures are cold we will use heat packs and extreme cold styrofoam liners. Shipping live goods is difficult as our warehouse could be 70 degrees and your home could be snowing, and all the stops in between. We do our best and will make it right for you and may request to try again at a different time.  During heat waves, it's best to avoid ordering live goods as ice packs etc don't do enough to mitigate it. 

30 Day Return Policy
Our goal is to provide a fair way to satisfy our customers and not lose money while doing it. We make every effort to fully disclose how our products work and what is to be expected. A damaged product during shipping is an automatic replacement from us. When it comes to a difference of opinion such as: "My fish doesn’t like this food." That we don’t refund for. However, if you decide the light you bought is a bit too green for your liking, provided it is in the original box, within 30 days and purchased from us, we will refund it at your cost of shipping.

If you would like to return a product, start the process by emailing us at shipping@aquariumcoop.com This allows us to see if there is something we can do before returning the product such as a feature you didn’t know about or send you a return label. We don’t require an RMA number, but do ask you to contact us to initiate the return. Please do not call the retail store as they operate separately from the warehouse and will not be able to issue you a return label etc.
