    I have 6 Amazon Swords, Echinodorus Bleheri I believe, to give away. These are about 9" tall with 6-12 leaves and 3"+ roots. They are very clean, no algae but could have blatter snails and/or java moss. I really doubt if they have blatter snails since they are in a 5 gal hold tank with 6...

    I have a "mother" plant amazon sword and flame sword that have produced shoots. From my readings I understood that I could cut the baby swords off and then "plant" them (i used a small stone to hold them in the substrate). It has been 3 days and I have not see any root shoots off of these...

My Tiger Lotuses and Amazon Swords are really looking amazing and growing fast, despite only having moderate lighting and around 20-25 ppm co2.

  8. General Planted Tank Discussion
    Hi, I'm new to live plants. I've had 5 different bettas, but I've never tried live plants, always been afraid to kill them, lol. Now I'm going to be getting a 55 gallon tank, and I want to have live plants in it! So my questions are: Can Java Fern, Anubias Petite Nana, Wendtii Red, and...

    I have a 30 gallon community tank with two Amazon Sword plants that aren't doing so well. They look like the leaves are decomposing from the center out. Also, the new leaves emerge colorless and with a rough surface and rippled edges. They eventually gain color but still retain the wavy edges...
  10. Tank Journals
    Hey guys! I'm new to the forum as well as new to planted aquariums. I've had this tank running for 3 months now and let me tell you, after everything cleared up after planting, the Cardinals seemed more happier! Before they would always hide behind the old artificial plants...
