This is a discussion on Ok here's the plants i ordered... ? within the Beginner Planted Aquarium forums, part of the Beginner Freshwater Aquarium category; -->
Hope I chose the right plants... 30g TANK... ordered from Sweet Aquatics
1 Potted Sword
2 Potted Foreground (can be substituted for microsword portions)
Looks good. Keep in mind that the Anubias and Java fern are to be attached to a decoration such as a piece of driftwood or to a rick or something. You don't bury the roots. I tied mine to my driftwood with black cotton string. The string will eventually rot away and the plant will be attached by the roots by then.
You carefully remove the pot and the gauze type material around the roots then plants it in the substrate. Carefully remove the gauze stuff. You don't want to yank the roots off the plants. I found the pots come off easy as well as the gauze. (or whatever it is)
I will have before and after pics up...I just ordered last night and I think sweet aquatics only ships stuff out on mondays and tuesdays so its probably going to be a week... In the meantime can I put the water in the tank and get the filter up and running or should i wait for the plants to show?
Just get everything set up, gravel rinsed & put it filter going and then also the heat going.
Whenever I order my plants there ( no matter which day I do) they ALWAYS arrive on Fri, never fails, I can relay on that one. Just another reason I like them guys, I don't have to do guess work when my stuff may or may not get here
