Anacharis (Egeria Densa)
Anacharis, also known as Egeria Densa, is a plant native to Argentina, Brazil, and Uruguay. It’s one of the best-known, hardy bunch plants, and it can greatly benefit your aquarium. This plant has an incredible ability to absorb large amounts of nutrients fast and thereby minimizing algae and bacterial growth.
Anacharis plants will reinvigorate the look and feel of your tank with their small, compact, bright green leaves and stems. They are a perfect background plant for any aquarium size. They can grow up to two meters long to fully fill up the back and top of your tank. But you can keep them shorter simply by trimming the tops. Watch them create a canopy and bloom with beautiful white flowers!
Care & Maintenance
Because this plant is highly adaptable and fast-growing, it’s one of the easiest plants to keep. It matches its photosynthetic output to available light to thrive in any light conditions. Plant it directly into sand or gravel, or leave it to float.
- Minimum Lighting Required: Low
- Temperature Range: 59-90° F
- Tank Placement: Floating & Background
Due to local restrictions, this plant does not ship to the following states:
- New Hampshire
- New York
- South Carolina
Because it is considered an invasive species, we do not recommend that you ever release this plant in a non-native habitat outside of your aquarium. If you have any questions about the Anacharis plant, reach out to us today.

Lush and hardy! they have grown quickly and are lovely additions to a 75 gallon tank
Quality plant, although they didn’t come with roots. They sent me a ton, and it seems to be doing well --Modern Aquarium Reply-- Thanks for the review, please know this is a stem plant that does not grow traditional roots, they are meant to be that way.
The anarchis was packaged adequately and I received my package in two days. However, most of the leaves were yellowing. This was most likely caused by shipment so MA didn’t do much wrong. Other than that, the bunches were plentiful and my betta loves them!
Perfect. My frog loves floating among it at the top
Beautiful and healthy plants, shipped quickly and packaged well! I know where to go next time I need plants!!
