Just about to order lots of plants and I want a sword behind the piece of spiderwood on the left. I'm super concerned that it'll be way too big for my 30 gallon, 36" long tank. Any suggestions besides jungle val.

Java fern, java moss, water sprite, water wisteria, dwarf Sag, dwarf hairgrass, micro sword, and cryptocoryne wendtii are some of my favorites
Love the micro sword in my 20 long. Anubias nana is one of my favorites as well.

Second on wisteria and crypts, melon and ozelot sword, and s. Repens are great too, and my compacts is doing well also. Misses would look great on the wood pieces!

I already have wisteria and water sprite in my 55. Wanted to try something different and also taller than the wood in the back left. I will also have my HOB on that side and I need a plant with thick leaves that won't get bent as easily by the current.

I'm not sure, but they are easy plants that look different.

Ozelot (in a 5 gallon)

Very new melon sword

The melon is pretty but the ozelot is beautiful! I really want a sword I tried one years ago before I was newbie with plants and failed miserably.

An Amazon sword should be fine in this sized tank!
Thanks, because I really want one. I ordered a red rubin last night after extensive research.
