Is this a good deal?
 
Large live aquarium plant package - 8 types of plants - eBay (item 280568730999 end time Oct-06-10 18:50:15 PDT)
I need some more tall plants and plants in general for my 44 gallon corner tank and I thought this might be a good start. What do you guys think?

If you like everything in the package, I think it's a great deal. $20 including shipping sounds cheap enough to me. The seller also has great feedback, which is huge. I also like water lettuce as a floating plant, which can be hard to come by. I have some floating in my 120g.

I looked up all the plants to make sure I did like them. LOL I am also going to put some of the water lettuce in with my betta tanks, as well as my 55 gallon were I have my honey gourami I think they will enjoy it.

It only comes with 3 water lettuce. That isn't much. They do grow daughter shoots that you can then cut off and put in othertanks, but I doubt you'll be able to do that right away.

Thats what I meant when I looked it up it says it grows realatively fast so I was thinking in a couple months or so I should have plenty to go around in all the tanks. LOL

LisaC144 10-01-2010 12:51 PM

Yes, I would say it grows relatively fast, but I don't know about fast enough to cover a 44g and 55g in a couple months. However, you could always a some pennywort in the meantime to float as well. I love pennywort :-)

Calmwaters 10-01-2010 12:59 PM

Yes I love pennywort to I have pennywort and another plant I can't recall the name of right now in the 55 right now as well as in one of my betta tanks and one of my 10 gallons. But I thought it would be fun to try something new.

LisaC144 10-01-2010 01:00 PM

Absolutely. I just bought some plants from a fellow friend on the forum. Trying Hygrophilia for the first time ;-) She also sent me so much pennywort I now have it growing out my ears! Love it!

Calmwaters 10-01-2010 01:04 PM

LOL yes thats one of the reasons I like it so much because it grows so fast.
