Vallisneria Americana is a popular background plant for any aquarium.  This plant grows fast and tall, spreading quickly to cover your aquarium.  The leaves are long like other Vallisneria species and grow in a twisted shape which can have a spectacular effect when fully grown in.  

This plant is said to tolerate some levels of salinity so may be able to survive in a brackish environment.  Propagation is easy and straight forward. This plant will produce lateral shoots which can be cut and replanted.
