Most of my plants I got from sweet aquatics. Like boredomb said the prices are good and the shipping was not that bad at all. My only issue was that it took close to 3 weeks for my plants to come in. I have heard this from others also, especially when they get very busy. I also had placed my order on Friday before Memorial day, so that probably had an effect on my order. The plants that I got where all in good shape though, and I am planning on probably placing another order again sometime soon in the future.

The water change really helped out the cloudiness.






Italian leopard val in the back right, Java fern.


Can someone ID this stuff?

Off the top of my head, I'd say that is Bacopa.

I'd say you are probably right.




Does look like it has some flower pods. It will be going in the back.

Byron congrats on the Pygmy Hatchet no one around here can even order them. I hope the others make it out of QT they are very pretty fish.

Strand-I have ordered a few times from sweetaquatics and another called aquariumplants.com I have been very happy with the plants I have recieved as well as the prices sweetaquatics is a good bit cheaper as far as shipping and price but it does take a while for them to ship them to you but to me its worth the wait to save the money. ; )

Kindest Regards,
Amanda

Keeping fish its not a hobby it is a passion!

55 gallon, 44 gallon, one 20 gallon tank, three 10 gallon tanks, and a 2.5 gallon all with real plants.

I have MTS and there is no cure.

40% off sale at the lfs so I picked up some plants.









The light makes it look crazy green in there in the pics. That's a piece of petrified wood on the left side.


Also got my blue ramshorn snails in. Best pic I could get:





You can see another big one in the top picture at the front of the tank. Couldn't find any blue shrimp for a picture. They are great at hiding.






Just received my cypress knees in the mail today. Bought some rock to silicone to the bottom. It's drying now and will go in tomorrow or the next day. I'll get some more pics when that's done.

The Java Fern should be attached to something, wood, rock, etc. A small piece of rock works, then you can move the plant around if you want.

Yeah I am going to attach it to one of the cypress knees.


I figure I'll get some of that pygmy chain sword like you suggested for the front and the tank will be pretty much done.


Once the levels are good I'll be adding a school of neons.

Added 2 Cypress Knees. One two point and one three point.


Levels checked out ok and I added 5 neon-tetra yesterday. I wanted to have a nice little school of them in there, I was thinking 12. More? Less?

This looks larger than 10g (first post said 10g tank), but if it is a 10g I would go with 7-8 neons. They grow, or will if they have "space."
