Would you say H'Ra does well as an emerged planting? Meaning, it stands up and doesn't fall over and spread across tank top. Our next tank will have submerged section, an emerged section and one type of terrestrial plant.If I had any room in my tank at all I'd trade you some H'ra for the sword. That stuff tries to grow out of the tank.
What kind do you have? Over twenty inches is a pretty big variety. I've only ever seen radicans and Rubens get that tall in a typical tank.I have an Amazon sword that I moved from my old 25g tank to my new 75 gallon tank. It is like "The Little Shop of Horrors." It is poking out of the 20" deep tank surface and incessantly putting out new runners, most growing vertically and breaking the surface also. It is now too big and putting the scape out of balance. The good news is that my tank parameters are good but I think that it needs to be re-homed. I just need to decide on it's replacement(s). I would prefer something tall that does not require a lot of trimming and goes with the other low light slow growing plants. My main issue is that since the sword is fast growing I am pretty sure it is keeping my nitrates in check as I have very little algae.
Thanks for the reply. I am not sure as I bought it from a local guy who was closing down his tank. I think that I will start another thread and include a photo so as not to derail this oneWhat kind do you have? Over twenty inches is a pretty big variety.
