    My fish instantly nestled into this plant. I appreciate that it has a root ball to keep it in the substrate better.

    It arrived plump, firm leaved and a wonderful medium green. This plant provides a very nice texture against my Anubis’s larger flat leaves. The tips add just the slightest extra movement. Another of my ‘fish buddies’ asked where “I bought my silk plants from because they just look perfect in there’
