+1, two might be a bit much as they send out runners quite quickly. I still have the one I got from Petco like a year back and I have to trim leaves like weekly just so it stays "small" in my 10 gallon. Sent out runners twice but I snipped those too :O

Fish Shrimp tanks are like cups of coffee, one is never enough.

MoeBetta - Thank you for that tip... I have been told by people at my aquarium store that they will only grow to four inches . Man... I've got to find a new aquarium store.

JustJen - That is exactly the reason I want them

diwu13 - I think that the amazon swords are off of my list now. I don't want to be constantly snipping.

Thanks everyone for your tips... I just got money for Christmas so I can finally start to order things!
