amazons in brackish


Has anyone experienced success with this? The one i put in my puffer tank died....rapidly. The anacharis and the java fern are doing well, but swords dont seem to live long. anyone have a differing experience?

I'm going to plant my puffer tank too, plantgeek.net has a "brackish adaptable" plant section. Amazons are not on the list, but Anacharis and Java Fern are. What's your WPG on the brackish tank?

I don't think they would. They come from an area where the water consistently has a fairly low pH and hardness level. Doesn't seem like a good idea.

IME java fern and java moss and java fern are the only growing brackish plants.
