So it turns out my local pet store has a good selection of aquatic plants! The set up is immersed! Not in sad tubes! There’s a large variety but they have no soil and no light. It’s kind of a mess but the plants are alive and ready to plant! The only light these poor plants have is the tube lighting in the store 😭 I’m about 2 weeks out from flooding my shrimp tanks so I might add one or two of these plants.
I am setting up some small shrimp jars (2 gallon each) and I might need another immersed plant for the water column. I need something that WON’T get too big and take over but I’d like a good healthy grower too. A 2 gallon jar isn’t much space! Does anything stick out to you? I need tiny but mighty, not an ultra slow grower.

Does anything catch your eye? A small yet robust grower?

I just revisited this store and the selection is gone and the stock has gone to hell 😭
Maybe it’s inbetween shipments of plants? Otherwise, it was SAD! Thankfully I found a better fish store on the other side of the county. Oh well!

That 75% sale was probably a way to clear out the inventory.
It’s cleared out! I didn’t even take any of the swords or crypts home this last visit because they were marked “assorted crypts/swords” with no species names! How am I supposed to know if it’s a 6 inch sword or a 24 inch tall sword? 😅
