Beautiful plant on arrival. Have not seen a Scarlet this red anywhere else... definite buy if you're looking for some good contrast to the greens in your tank.


Beautiful top quality and fast delivery

Red plant

Showed up with broken stems due to overstuffing box with brown paper but eveyrthing is growing and nice color.

My new favorite red plant

I don't run CO2, so most demanding red plants in my tank don't stay too red, or they accumulate a lot of BBA. I have four of these from the co-op now, and all are impeccable. Not shooting up like a weed, but also not losing much color or leaves.

So far, so good!

I bought 3 and tucked them in 3 different spots in my new tank. I'm still testing to see what I am to do with my current set up, no Co2, I did invest in some better lighting though. I had tried a different vendor for this plant just to experiment, however it didnt take long to realize it was a mistake. Within a week I hopped on Aquarium Coop and got their plants which a far superior and are doing much better after only 2 weeks. I can possibly even propagate sooner than I thought! Lots of new roots already:) great company & superior products!
