"It was about 3 ft long!"

And the amount of plants you get is by far the best deal. After a good month in my aquarium, the brown dried sections did not improve. Fast shipping, impressed with product. Some leaves came off but overall it is doing very well. This is day 1& 2 Will post an update over time. Treating it just like my other sword plants. I received it healthy and in great shape.

"So far, so good."

I stuck the other pack in freezer dont think ill need anytime soon. The moss is covering up the wires so you can no longer see them. Hopefully, this will help set what you will experience as well. I stuck the other pack in freezer dont think ill need anytime soon. My fish and I are very happy with this purchase. They've been in my tank 24 hours and are starting to adjust well. It seems hit or miss but the second time around I am very satisfied.

"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.

"2 days later HOT HOT HOT."

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.

SunGrow Final Thoughts

"This is day 3 of growth."

You can see my cory is obsessed with it. Make sure you have a cleared area to plant. I guess the heated water finally got them to grow. All are very healthy for having been in the mail. Plants arrived in a clear sealed bag. Can't wait to see how well it does. I did trim some of the plants back to remove old leaves so only new ones are left.

"One last note."

Copper is toxic to inverts like snails and shrimp. The plants are awesome and I got way more than I was expecting. Some leaves came off but overall it is doing very well. As others have said these things will stick to EVERYTHING. They still floated around for a bit but eventually settled to the bottom evenly. Cleaned them up and placed in the tank. I don't know if after the ParaGard treatment if I should treat it in an algaecide.

"Ordered this for my 5."

I posted before and after pictures of both aquariums. Telanthera, man oh man did I really like this. I stuck the other pack in freezer dont think ill need anytime soon. But on the marimo moss balls and even some of teh hardscape it was attached to. I made a light wire webbing out of light weight wire. I placed the bulk of the moss in the webbing and twisted it up to hold it in place. It's not sticky once it sprouted, on day 2 for me.

"NO sign of distress."

Over night on the 7th day it sprouted all over the tank. This time to add variety I ordered the FL bundle, and am once again glad I did. The package is great, they are resealable. My fish and I are very happy with this purchase. I received it healthy and in great shape. I felt like this was a great price for this plant. I could not get them to grow at first, but that was my fault.

"They came very quickly."

They are doing great and growing very well. Of course it's just a twisted clump of it now. Placed in the tank and after a week leaves started to turn to mush. They floated for a really long time and eventually migrated together. However this is not the plants themselves fault. Roots were already growing so planted in the tank. Can see where a leaf has been plucked.

Overall i'm happy with the purchase. Anubias Barteri, came with 3 leaves, tall and healthy. Such a wonderful and easy way to add whimsy to a tank. The Java fern has a ton of little baby java ferns on it now. I guess the heated water finally got them to grow. They've been in my tank 24 hours and are starting to adjust well.

I'm ok with this since I have 3 assassin snails. Get the seeds exactly where you want them before adding water. They grow rather quickly, and root very deeply into your substrate. But I am also glad I purchased 2 orders 4 Oz is well 4 Oz. No leaves have rotted and doing very well. Make sure you have a cleared area to plant. This allowed the seeds to disperse.
