Is this a good deal?

Large live aquarium plant package - 8 types of plants - eBay (item 280568730999 end time Oct-06-10 18:50:15 PDT)
I need some more tall plants and plants in general for my 44 gallon corner tank and I thought this might be a good start. What do you guys think?

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.

If you like everything in the package, I think it's a great deal. $20 including shipping sounds cheap enough to me. The seller also has great feedback, which is huge. I also like water lettuce as a floating plant, which can be hard to come by. I have some floating in my 120g.

It only comes with 3 water lettuce. That isn't much. They do grow daughter shoots that you can then cut off and put in othertanks, but I doubt you'll be able to do that right away.

Thats what I meant when I looked it up it says it grows realatively fast so I was thinking in a couple months or so I should have plenty to go around in all the tanks. LOL

Yes, I would say it grows relatively fast, but I don't know about fast enough to cover a 44g and 55g in a couple months. However, you could always a some pennywort in the meantime to float as well. I love pennywort

Yes I love pennywort to I have pennywort and another plant I can't recall the name of right now in the 55 right now as well as in one of my betta tanks and one of my 10 gallons. But I thought it would be fun to try something new.
