    12 Plant Package
    Posted by Dan G. on 26 Apr 2024

    Packaged very well got a nice mix of very healthy plants. Foreground, background and midground. A mix of reds and greens with an attention to giving some large and small plants. They packaged each plant in an individual baggie with a p-touched label for easy identification. I did not see any snails or parasites, washed them with alum anyway as a precaution but all looked extremely clean. Currently planted in the tank and doing well. Thanks, will purchase more!

    Not an ideal selection
    Posted by Anne Simmons on 8 Sep 2022

    The plants arrived in pretty good shape, with only a few dried out tips and broken stems. So far I haven’t lost any and about half appear to be growing. Unfortunately many of the plants were similar—lots of long, thin, grass-like shapes. I’ve had to buy additional plants to hide the heater and vary the look.

    Disappointing, not all low tech
    Posted by Abby on 3 Feb 2022

    Was given this as a present. Some plants were labeled as "various", which is not helpful when I need to troubleshoot. The sizes of bunches were also smaller than when I have ordered from MA in the past. Glosso was included which is not a low tech plant at all. Die back is expected, but this plant immediately died away and hasn't come back after three months. All info I've found about it suggests it needs CO2. Three stars only for packaging and that the plants were in good condition, only minimally damaged as can be expected. Don't do a pack. Do your research and select your own plants that you're certain will work in your aquarium. When they throw in high tech plants that die the pack discount isn't worth it. --Modern Aquarium Reply-- Hi Abby, thank you for a thorough review. I would like to address and explain two point made in the review; 1- Plant packages are sold at much cheaper prices (per plant) than individually selected plants and the way we are able to achieve those savings is in lesser labor costs. While the plants in packages are as beautiful as selected individually, they are not labeled with their scientific names like when purchased individually, allowing us to cut down on labor and pass on the savings in form of lower prices, to you and other customers. 2 - I am sorry Glosso did not do well for you, but please know it is not considered a hi tech plant by any means. Please feel free to reach out to us so we can brainstorm as to what might have happened and caused its demise. Thank you

    10/10 would highly reccomend
    Posted by taylor pappas on 27 Jan 2022

    This is my second order with modern aquarium and I can’t say enough amazing things. First time I ordered I made a mistake with my shipping address and customer service quickly responded and fixed this, super friendly as well! . This time, I ordered this 12 plant package for my 30 gallon aquarium and everything shipped super fast and the plants came healthy and alive. No little snail pests and no plant material breaking off into the water during placement. I am so thrilled with my purchase and will be telling other fish keeping friends about this place! If you purchase you will not be disappointed.
