AquaPlants First Impressions

"NO sign of distress."

I stuck the other pack in freezer dont think ill need anytime soon. I can imagine I will buy this again as I use up the seeds. I just wanted to update this almost 7 months later. My tank is a medium light, low-tech 55g set up. But it's not a brilliant green but any stretch of the imagination. But on the marimo moss balls and even some of teh hardscape it was attached to. Can see where a leaf has been plucked.

AquaPlants Final Thoughts

"Love Them!"

Java fern is doing ok, it is still getting used to the tank. And the amount of plants you get is by far the best deal. My fish and I are very happy with this purchase. I made a light wire webbing out of light weight wire. If I ever make another tank, I'm ordering from here again. The plants did all arrive dry so I am sure there will be some melting. I don't know if after the ParaGard treatment if I should treat it in an algaecide.

2. Azolla filiculoides (Water Velvet) - Live Aquarium Plant

User Ratings: 40 43

AquaPlants First Impressions

"Gorgeous plants!"

It's just not available in local pet shops. Seller even wrote a detailed page of instructions to care for the plants. Altlandsberg Sword, very beautiful plant. Some leaves came off but overall it is doing very well. Sprouted after 3 days in a Pyrex planted in existing aqurium substrate. The plants arrived in Hawaii from California within 48 hours and looked amazing. But over all really lovely plants extremely happy.

  • Azolla filiculoides (Water Velvet) - Live Aquarium Plant
  • You buy 10-15 small plants of Azolla filiculoides (Water Velvet) – Species Profile Azolla filiculoides (aka Water Velvet) is a miniscule floating plant.
  • From a distance it can resemble Duckweed (Lemna minor), due to both having tiny leaves, but the plants are unrelated.
  • In fact Azolla are more closely related to Salvinia. Both are floating, aquatic ferns. This fast growing plant will sprout daughter plants from the parent plant, creating mat-like layer of plant material on the water surface. Like Salvinia, its leaves have a fuzzy, velvety look to them. This comes from the many tiny, water repelling hairs that grow on the leaf surface. Unlike Salvinia, Water Velvet does not grow trailing roots.

"5 gallon betta tank."

It seems hit or miss but the second time around I am very satisfied. After that it seemed to grow right before my eyes. I divided it between three tanks and all three divisions are looking good. I absolutely love how this plant looks in my tank. I will definitely reorder in future. No roots yet, but still green and no evidence of dying. I did trim some of the plants back to remove old leaves so only new ones are left.

3. Dwarf Hairgrass - Eleocharis acicularis - in-vitro – Live Aquarium Plant

AquaPlants First Impressions

"That is totally expected."

I got these to dry start a carpet in my new nano tank. I can imagine I will buy this again as I use up the seeds. However this is not the plants themselves fault. The moss is covering up the wires so you can no longer see them. I would note they did not come with any instructions. I haven't noticed any snails either could help that the plants arrived fairly dry. But it's not a brilliant green but any stretch of the imagination.
