I can imagine I will buy this again as I use up the seeds. A lot of information online, came with 5-6 stems and healthy. I know much thought was placed in picking these plants.

"So far, so good."

This is day 1& 2 Will post an update over time. Attached are pictures and video from day one thru day 21. I stuck the other pack in freezer dont think ill need anytime soon. Make sure you have a cleared area to plant. I feel a little goes a long way too, so these two packages would plant a TON. I liked the fact the seeds didn't go all over the place. It's really cute and I have plenty of seed left over to play in other places.

"They died."

Photo was taken on 8 days after receiving seeds. I got these to dry start a carpet in my new nano tank. DO NOT BUY unless you have an established quarantine tank, and quarantine them first.

After looking around I went ahead and decided to give these a try.

"This is my first moss."

Placed in the tank and after a week leaves started to turn to mush. Sprouted after 3 days in a Pyrex planted in existing aqurium substrate. A lot of information online, came with 5-6 stems and healthy. The plants are awesome and I got way more than I was expecting. I planted them in planters for my betta to rest on and he loves them. Some leaves came off but overall it is doing very well. I posted new pictures to show the growth but I did move some plants around.

"No co2 added."

This time to add variety I ordered the FL bundle, and am once again glad I did. But it's not a brilliant green but any stretch of the imagination. These ferns are the only plants in my aquarium so i KNOW it's from them. This allowed the seeds to disperse. When it's wrapped and plastic and stuck in a box that’s gunna happen. They are doing great and growing very well. A bit smaller than advertised but they'll grow.

"Added water on day 8."

Make sure you have a cleared area to plant. I just wanted to update this almost 7 months later. Placed in the tank and after a week leaves started to turn to mush. My fish and I are very happy with this purchase. Doing great so far and placed a fert tab in the gravel. Of course it's just a twisted clump of it now. Such a wonderful and easy way to add whimsy to a tank.

Roots were already growing so planted in the tank. I don't know if after the ParaGard treatment if I should treat it in an algaecide. I guess the heated water finally got them to grow.

SunGrow First Impressions

"This is fine."

Java fern is doing ok, it is still getting used to the tank. I got these to dry start a carpet in my new nano tank. Very good quality plants at an amazing price, roots looked great. They are doing great and growing very well. The moss is covering up the wires so you can no longer see them. No roots yet, but still green and no evidence of dying. I'll post an update in about a month.

  • SunGrow Hermit Crab Sea Sponges, 2 Inches, Promote Healthy Shell Development, Assists in Drinking, Moisture Cocoon to Keep Crabs Moist and Hydrated, 4 Pack
  • ✔ SERVES AS MOISTURE COCOON FOR HERMIT CRABS --- Having modified gills, crabs are able to live on land. However, since their breathing mechanism is not lungs, these gills need enough moisture to function well. The 4-pack Hermit Sponge by SunGrow allows your little climber pet refuge if they feel too dry. These sponges allow your hermit crabs to drink and exit their water dishes conveniently.
  • ✔ MAINTAIN CRABITAT’S OPTIMAL HUMIDITY LEVEL --- Maintaining proper humidity is essential in a crab’s habitat in order for him to survive healthily. The ideal level is about 70 – 80 percent. In nature, crabs live in a warm and moist type of climate and including a sponge in your crabitat is one way to provide them humid living space. The sea sponge provides a larger surface where water dries and retains moisture.
  • ✔ GIVE SAFE ENTRY AND EXIT POINTS TO WATER DISH --- Hermit crabs simply love to climb. Placing this sea sponge in the dish can help them climb in and out which can easily reduce a possible case of drowning. As these sponges also help in keeping their gills moist, them being claustrophobic in their dish can also be avoided.
  • ✔ PROMOTES LONGER LIFE --- Chitin, calcium and other healthy raw materials found in the ocean’s bottom are present in this sponge. So when your crawlers nibble on them, they will benefit and have a healthier exoskeleton, the outer shell which they shed over time. Apart from that, this being a good source of water facilitates them a quick drink whenever they feel thirsty.
  • ✔ DIRECTIONS FOR USAGE --- Pack includes 4 pieces approximately 2 inches long x 1.5 inches wide x 1.5 inches tall. These sponges add rustic beauty to your crab’s tank aside from its other functional benefits. In your crab’s water dish, ensure to place the sponge in a region that takes up most of its dish area. Regularly clean the bowl and sponge. To clean sponge properly, simply put it inside the microwave for 10-15 seconds or dip it in the boiling water.

It's really cute and I have plenty of seed left over to play in other places. In my low tech tank it grows slowly enough that it would be easy to control. It's just not available in local pet shops. I received the new package the next day and the plants were perfect. This is day 1& 2 Will post an update over time. It's part of it so do the dry start method. Roots were already growing so planted in the tank.
