"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.

SunGrow Final Thoughts

"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.

"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.

"My carpet is about 1."

I stuck the other pack in freezer dont think ill need anytime soon. This is my first review posting ever! I eventually scooped the seeds out and gave up. It's not brow either, just a brownish green if that's possible. But it's not a brilliant green but any stretch of the imagination. Over night on the 7th day it sprouted all over the tank. A lot of information online, came with 5-6 stems and healthy.

"All healthy."

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.

Peacock moss True Variety Freshwater Live Moss Taxiphylum First Impressions

"My fish love them."

The plants arrived in Hawaii from California within 48 hours and looked amazing. I didn't realize it was 2 packages and there was so many in each package. They grow rather quickly, and root very deeply into your substrate. The plants did all arrive dry so I am sure there will be some melting. And, it has survived pretty well considering I never give it nutrients. I'm ok with this since I have 3 assassin snails. Picture shows my new plants actually coating my old plants.

"A slightly small portion."

I could not get them to grow at first, but that was my fault. I know much thought was placed in picking these plants. I just wanted to see if it worked and it did. I felt like this was a great price for this plant. In my low tech tank it grows slowly enough that it would be easy to control. It seems hit or miss but the second time around I am very satisfied. My fish and I are very happy with this purchase.

"I would buy them again."

These ferns are the only plants in my aquarium so i KNOW it's from them. I did trim some of the plants back to remove old leaves so only new ones are left. I feel a little goes a long way too, so these two packages would plant a TON. Seller even wrote a detailed page of instructions to care for the plants. When it's wrapped and plastic and stuck in a box that’s gunna happen. But it's not a brilliant green but any stretch of the imagination. If I ever make another tank, I'm ordering from here again.

It even stuck to the corys who had to brush against a rock to get it off. So took it out and trimmed most of the leaves off and left a couple on each stem. Before you buy, do some research on the plants you will receive. I did a dry start and followed the instructions as directed very meticulously. Java Fern and Vallisneria, two of the easiest plants to have. Really perfect for my first tank plant. A lot of information online, came with 5-6 stems and healthy.
