I will definitely be getting quite a few of those then. I'm looking for a nice foreground plant besides the pgymy chain sword. I have plenty of runners of the pgymy chain sword now, as long as they live through the transition of taking them out of the 55g and into the 120g. Also, my red wendtii finally took off and has tripled its original size. I'm hoping that lasts through the transition, as I know they don't enjoy being moved.

I'm excited to learn that 4-5 Bolivian's will suit my 120g. The only issue with males to and females is that my LFS usually has young ones and sex cannot be determined at that size. If I end up with all males, will 4-5 still be okay with plenty of plants?

Yes, a 6-foot tank will provide lots of room. Hopefully you'll get both sexes which will add to the interest and enjoyment.

Assuming you mean the tall plant in the centre of both photos, that is a sword, Echinodorus. I believe the species is Echinodorus palaefolius, and probably E. palaefolius var. latifolius according to Dr. Rataj's last revision of the genus in 2004.

I used to have this species in my 115g many years ago. I have been looking for it recently but can't find it locally. A nice plant in larger aquaria (18+ inches deep).

Byron.
