Look now, what y'all say?
I'm really pleased with he quality & quantity of plants that arrived today, was unsure about ordering from a unknown online place, but now I'm happy.
Boy did I mentally block out how hanging sideways in a 55g to plant it hurts your back after a while....but its well worth it.
Its been YEARS (and then some) since I last bought actual brand new plants, so I'm not used to these tiny things any more, but I do believe they're pretty decent size, BUT they gotta hurry up and grow in now LOL looks very 'empty' I know, but it will grow in over time.
Like the Amazon swords in the back, mine all were 2ft kinda floating up top when I had to give my tanks up, so these one's with about 12-13" look MINI to me lol.
The Tiger Lotus didn't appreciate to be shipped, but that's to be expected for such a fragile plant, it'll grow back out nice thou.

So now of cause: WHAT Y'ALL THINK??????

Looks good! I like the way you grouped the plants. It will be interesting to see this tank in about 3 months. It ought to fill out nicely of course.

Tanks Wisfish..I know they're small, but once grown in some 5-6 mos from now I think this tank will be PLENTY full with plants.
