    Red Beauties more like it.
    Posted by Dustin TheWind on 24 Aug 2022

    These bad boys are some lookers!! I got 8 clumps, a few pretty large, packed In the 4oz cup. Doesn’t sound like much but they are beautiful!! Excellent addition to break up the monotony of a duckweed carpet. No snails I’ve seen so far, good thing to rinse and soak for a few hours. Lots of little broken root hairs. Very few dying leaves. Mostly robust and lush leaves. Bright red roots. Seriously beautiful!! Some of the roots hang down many inches. Super pleased with the purchase!! Can’t wait to see them grow. Added bonus- I found two very small spangles with roots! Put them in as well and fingers crossed they make it. Very excited to watch it grow. Betta seems to love it so far.

    I love them they really add color to my tanks. My fish also have been loving them. The only thing was that some of the leaves arrived a little dried out.

    Posted by Joseph H on 14 Jul 2022

    I ordered for a 4oz cup and I was floored with how much I got! Really amazed to get that many floaters and I absolutely love how they look, I think over 99% are healthy and lush green! One of the floaters is already spreading its root deep in my aquarium, love it.
