Free micro swords


Well my micro swords have been sprouting like mad in my 29. I have a good handful that I pulled this afternoon during weekly maintenance if anyone in the North Metro to Fort Collins area would like them.

I wish we could get a better species ID on these because as Noahma posted they are one of the most prolific plants in my tanks. Micro chain swords was the name on them when I purchased them but over time they can top out at the surface in a tank.

+2 on the dwarf sagitaria. They dont stay so "dwarf" and send runners all over. I once had a tank with a dozen that was completely filled in a year.

Sag in my tanks has a much thicker leaf with darker color than the photo. (I have both plants)
