I really like big swords and yours look super healthy. Looks good and will look great as it fills!

It is better to travel well than to arrive.

I think your tank looks great. However, IMO...ditch the sword. They grow to ridiculous sizes and soak up sooooo many nutrients. I had a big one like that in my 75, and I was dosing quite a lot. After I yanked it, my other plants took off.

I think you're right. I've got to figure out what to replace it with. Any suggestions?

A red rubin sword would be similar, more attractive even, and be more manageable. Or some crypt spiralis would give you a little different look.
