Depends on how you plant it. It's a great midground if you bury the stem lengthwise in the substrate. It gives a canopy about 1 inch about the substrate to wherever it decides to climb, usually a few inches. Fish love swimming under it.Aada said:Thank you for the picture Wraithen! That probably is it then. Yours looks really dense and lush! Do you think it's good as a background plant, or should it be more of a midground plant? I've got it in my 60 that's 25" tall.
Yeah, I would put the sword by the filter intake. They dont shed leaves as easily. Take it from me, leaves getting trapped in the intake helps make a nasty intake tube. Sword leaves are pretty tough, so they shouldn't have an issue.Aada said:If that's the case, I wonder if it wouldn't make more sense to purchase a larger background plant and try to move the wisteria to growing horizontally instead. They're currently in the back corner of my tank, in the area I want to be most densely planted.
I included a picture from when this was all first planted, a month ago, but I don't have an updated picture yet. I'll get one tonight after work. So far the other plants are one Amazon sword and three aponogeton of unknown type. The aponogeton were sold as a cup of 3 bulbs, otherwise I would have only got one. The Amazon sword and aponogeton have really taken off where this one has stayed relatively tiny.
