      Let there be some Red...

      Decided to add some Red colored plants to my 10 gallon tank. Going to mix the Alternanthera Reinecki in between the Staurogyne Repens . My plants arrived individually housed in a secure sealed plastic slip and there was no leaking what so ever. Ive only had them in the tank for a week or so but already there are roots running from the sides and front of the stems.I have pretty good lighting and Co2 and by dosing THRIVE twice a week it might make for a successful planting. This is my second attempt at planting a red plant and with the information I received from APF,Im hoping for the best.

      They were Gobbled up!

      They were pretty when I put them in, but by the end of the week my goldfish gobbled it all up. Literally not even a stalk survived. It was packed very nicely and arrived very quickly.

      Plants came very well packaged! And the plants are very healthy. My fish loves them, especially my angelfish. Very good communication with the seller! Thank you! Looking forward to get more plants in the very near future. Thanks again!!

      Plants looked great.

      The plants came very well packaged in a box with an aluminum blanket wrap and all the plants look very healthy. Ill update in a month on growth. Will buy again in future.

      Beautiful Coloration!

      I bought these while they were $3.99 and WOW. A bang for your buck! These plants create a beautiful accent to a green tank and create an awesome shelter to the smaller fish to hide. They have great height and offer such great additions to planted tanks
