Juncus Repens is an easy-to-care carpeting plant which originates from USA. It can grow very fine in low-tech tanks.

In high-tech tanks, it can grow reddish colourations which sets this apart from many other foreground plants. 

Based on Aquarzon's observations, the width of its leaves falls in between the width of dwarf hairgrass and Lilaeopsis/Blyxa/Pygmy Chain Sword. As such, this plant is the perfect foreground plant for a hobbyist who is looking for a carpeting plant which is slightly thicker than hairgrass but still thinner than Lilaeopsis/Blyxa/Pygmy Chain Sword. 

We observe the leaves to be thin at approximately 1-2mm width with spiky-end appearance and slight curls as it grows.  

Aquarzon recommends this plant as a supporting foreground/midground plant. For example, Micranthemum Monte Carlo (which is shorter) can be used as a primary foreground plant while Juncus Repens can be used as a supporting plant, to be placed around the perimeters of the Monte Carlo.

Alternatively, the Juncus Repens can be used as a standalone foreground/midground plant by positioning it to fill gap areas to create a natural effect. 

Aquarzon recommends this plant for hobbyists who need a carpeting/creeping plant while enjoying the appearance of something similar to Blyxa, Pgyma Chain Sword and Lilaeopsis but want something with thinner width, but not as thin as dwarf hairgrass.
