  10. General Planted Tank Discussion
    Hi - I had these 2 sword plants that I suspect to be 2 separate species (or so I think) I am sure that B is Amazon Sword, how about A? Also - A has been sending out red/brownish leaves. Is this normal? The leaves are not smushy and the plant overall appears to be healthy. Thanks! Info: 20...
