In response to redchigh: it is a 10 gallon tank, and the swords are E. Amazonicus, at least that's what it says on the package they came in. Not all of these swords will be in this tank for long. Three maybe four of them are going into another 10 gallon once I have enough gravel, so once there is more room I'll rearrange the ones in this tank. All of my tanks already have gravel, and I really don't feel like messing around with soil, especially in my 45 gallon. It's a tall tank, and even standing on a stool it's hard for me to reach the bottom, which is why I just want to pile on more gravel when it's time to plant the swords.
In response to Calmwaters: I do plan on getting Pennywort. I've seen lots of pictures of planted tanks and the ones who have pennywort, for some reason, to me it always catches my eye right away. Unfortunately none of the LPS's I've been to have any in stock. I'm going to try one south of my town, but there's been a lot of road construction going on down that way so it might have to wait awhile. I do want to float some of the plants, but it's going to have to wait for the moment because I'm afraid it will get caught on the filter intake. Once the plants are big enough to absorb all of the ammonia on their own and I ditch the filter than I'll try floating.
