Hi Lisa,

From what I can tell with Eric's pictures, the Red Rubin will come taller than the Red Melon that I got. The leaves are shaped differently too. The Red Rubin looks longer and narrower...the leaves...and the melon are cute little oval leaves that I think do get get a little narrower as they mature. I already have new growth and the leaves that are getting more mature are getting a little more elongated. The Red Melon that I got came in the pots and are real short....not around 2" inches tall or not much more than that. They look really cute in the front. I really love them. However, I am sure I would like the Red Rubin too. I wanted something to put toward the front to mid that was not too tall. They will get taller but for now they are nice and they will still look good a little taller. I am not sure which one is the tallest at maturity. I think maybe the Rubins. HTH

I like the Red Rubin. It has a reddish tint to it. I can't wait to see it big and grown.

I wanted to give this thread a bump to say how awesome SA is. I've never ordered anything 'live' online before. The plants came very secured, very healthy and absolutly gorgeous....My tank has made such an improvment from where it started.

I would not hesitate to order from them again.

Kudos to Sweet Aquatics!

110% agree, Johnny! My plants came VERY well packed, nice sizes/growth, and very lush! Ludwigia repens lost a lot of leaves and is very bare at the bottom (looks like a branch), but I am confident it will have new growth soon. Mary and Dan were very helpful with everything and answered all my questions. A+ Sweet Aquatics! Thank you for caring so much.

I just ordered from SA a couple days ago... Haven't gotten them, but I'm extremely exited. Mary was so nice... she's even throwing in some addl plants and free snails. :)
And my order was only $17 shipped, so its not only the big spenders that get special treatment.
