tough and hardy
the 2 bundles i have were beaten and eaten badly by a decent sized,ravenous pleco.the fish was just destroying them.i have removed the pleco now(found it a new home)but even after many replantings due to pleco and also restructuring aquarium,not only did these plants rebound,they are taking off like nothing ever happened to them.

Great plant, lots of snails
I love the plant itself, it has a great bright color and grows very well. I bought two of these about two months ago and they are super easy to take care of. However, after purchasing them I now have about half a dozen little snails in my tank that snuck in on these plants, so that's something to be aware of. Other than that, great plants!

Don't get me wrong, I do really love this plant. However, while I was in-store they all looked drastically horrible. More than half the sprouts (in any one bundle) were brown and decaying. I bought one out of spite because the healthy parts looked absolutely gorgeous and my molly fry really needed plants with smaller, more safe hiding places.
I was, however, very stunned that the plant survived. Within a few days it had sprouted new growth, and I was rest-assured that I could cut off the brown/decaying parts (do this before you add it to the aquarium or else it'll dirty the water a lot). It looks beautiful and has provided great shelter and food for my fry. :)
I did however pay more than the price advertised on here, which I guess I could expect that it would change from store-to-store.

I bought the Anacharis Plant (weed) for my 45G. Within a week it already had side sprouts, which I cut and added to my other tank. It grows quickly and with little maintenance.
I recently brought 2 Angels and they love this plant. They will take a couple of nibbles whenever they are hungry or need a snack. Depending on how quick the new transplants grow, I may be getting more.
I would recommend this plant to anyone looking for an easy live plant to add to their tank(s).
