    Arrived healthy

    Posted by Mike Hunsicker on 24 Mar 2021

    Ordered 3 cups and all arrived in good shape with still some moisture in the cups. I followed the instructions including the dip which freaked me out a bit but I am trusting the process! All 3 cups went into quarantine tank and I can already see a bit of red on the roots. Can’t wait to see them acclimated and in the main display tank. For reference- my QT tank is a 10 gallon tank and the 3 cups filled out the top nicely.

    The shipment was fast and it was so fresh and well packaged, like it came from the next door store... Floaters are so cute and they look good in my tanks, can’t wait to see the roots grow long. Highly recommend to order !

    I Failed These

    Posted by Brandy Linden on 2 Feb 2021

    These are so pretty but I hadn't read enough on them before hand. My tank is only 29 gallons and the water moves quite a bit on top. After I read they didn't do well when water moves around a lot, I put them into a separate container with light to protect them until I came up with a way to protect them from the water movement. By the time I came up with something, which was a net wall basically, to keep them on one side of the tank in calm water, they died off. I'd really like to try these again some time if and when I put a pond in outside. I also was glad I bought a heater for the fish since these plants I read to better in warmer waters. Thanks!

    Amazing!

    Container was very secure and the plants were very healthy. Container was also very packed (as much as they could safely fit for the plant) I have seen virtually no melt!

    Great plants

    Posted by Chad Anderson on 19 Jan 2021

    The red root floaters showed up in great condition. They were well packaged and were not damaged even though the box was dented by the carrier. The day after I put them in my aquarium they were already sprouting new growth. Just be sure to quarantine them properly if you don't want snails

    I ordered two cups of the red root floaters. Which was more than enough for my 20 gal long. The colors are great and they came super healthy!

    They are awesome. I have them in three of my tanks. The roots were long and they were very green. I have them with some parrots/cichlids and afraid they were going to be eaten but they have not. hopefully they will flourish and even flower for me.
