Yes they do, nice plants. Make sure you use Flourish (or something similar...) as swords are heavy feeders. Liquid Flourish works fine, substrate ferts are good but not necessary, I have swords growing well with just liquid.

The aquarist is one who must learn the ways of the biologist, the chemist, and the veterinarian. [unknown source]

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]

Thanks for all the advice. I'm hoping to see new growth on the plants by next week :)
