Hey Tom,

What *Najas* species are we likely to encounter in aquaria? Around here, 
the only kind I have, and that we normally see, we call *guadalupensis*, 
but IDK if that is correct. It's leggier than the photo, usually, and a 
weed that very rapidly takes over any well-lit tank.

How do you pronounce the genus name? Is the "j" a normal Latin/English 
sound or the "h" sound of Spanish?
