Huge swords

I have four swords in a 44g that are gigantic and really crowding the tank. I'd like to get rid of two of them locally. Let me know asap if you're interested, otherwise they go to WOF. they are 24" tall and very healthy.

I have found that the larger swords are hard to get rid of except at WOF, if you do take yours in you may see the one I just sold them.

Yeah, I'd imagine that most places wouldn't know what to do with them! They even freak out at WOF when I bring plants in there because they're so huge... it's really funny to see their reactions. How much did they give you for the sword? I can't believe how fast the sword shriveled up after I pulled it out of the tank. I put it I a 5g bucket with a little water in the bottom and by the time i got to the store it wasn't worth bringing in... it looked like it had been drying out for days! Have you noticed this with swords?

I am not sure what I got for the sword, $5 I think. I brought in a ton of stuff.

I brought my sword, and all the other plants in wet newspaper and haven't had any problems with them shriveling.
