Nice looking plant

Plant arrived well packed and in very good condition. Recieved about 6 stems all a good size with good root development. I hit them with some of Simple Green and Simple Iron after planting, and after 2 days I already have new growth! I thought I might have seen two tiny snails on the plant, but I haven't seen them since, so I must of have been sadly mistaken. Anyway, The Scarlet Temple is the third plant I've bought from Aquarium Coop, and I will definitely buy more in the future.

Great red plant

Plant arrived well packaged. Recieved 4 stems. Planted them and didn't even notice any melting. It appears they may have already been transitioned to under water growth when I got them. They have been growing like crazy with co2 and fert. I have been giving my clippings to friends and they are enjoying them now too. Some of my friends don't run co2, and are still getting great growth.

Tried 4 times it wont grow for me.

Ive bought this plant 4 times tried everything easy iron and easy green the most I can get is a little bit of root growth and it dies slowly but no new leaves.The plants I recieved had 6 to 7 stems in a pot but no roots.so I purchased again maybe ill get some with roots but nope I recieved stems again. Im glad some have had success with this plant Fast shipping with heat pack.Would by from aquarium coop again ,I also like Cory's youtube channel ,but I feel this plant makes me :(

Over 3 weeks and it still has color!

Have never been able to keep them alive let alone keep the beautiful passionate pink leaves. Thanks to good plant stock, a thin layer of Flourite u der my gravel, a Fluval 3.0 Planted light and EASY IRON!
.....and the best part, my goldfish aren't even eating them. It looks so great in my tank!

Live Arrival Guarantee
We guarantee our live products will arrive alive. We ask that you do your part and minimize the amount of time our packages sit out in the elements. It can also be a good idea to avoid ordering live items during extreme temperatures. This would be when night time temps are below 35 and over 80 degrees during the day. Now these temps are not for sure death, it's just what makes it easiest for all of us during shipping.

When temperatures are cold we will use heat packs and extreme cold styrofoam liners. Shipping live goods is difficult as our warehouse could be 70 degrees and your home could be snowing, and all the stops in between. We do our best and will make it right for you and may request to try again at a different time.  During heat waves, it's best to avoid ordering live goods as ice packs etc don't do enough to mitigate it. 

30 Day Return Policy
Our goal is to provide a fair way to satisfy our customers and not lose money while doing it. We make every effort to fully disclose how our products work and what is to be expected. A damaged product during shipping is an automatic replacement from us. When it comes to a difference of opinion such as: "My fish doesn’t like this food." That we don’t refund for. However, if you decide the light you bought is a bit too green for your liking, provided it is in the original box, within 30 days and purchased from us, we will refund it at your cost of shipping.

If you would like to return a product, start the process by emailing us at shipping@aquariumcoop.com This allows us to see if there is something we can do before returning the product such as a feature you didn’t know about or send you a return label. We don’t require an RMA number, but do ask you to contact us to initiate the return. Please do not call the retail store as they operate separately from the warehouse and will not be able to issue you a return label etc.
