It looks fantastic in the tank and very healthy. I just put it in and I can’t wait to watch it grow.
I ordered Aponogeton from Dustin’s Fish tanks and got a big and healthy plant. I decided to clip off all the damaged leafs and even then it’s still gorgeous. Thanks Dustin, you guys never disappoint!
I'm so happy!! I purchased plants from some local pet stores a month ago and was shocked by the prices and sizes. They were small and expensive. The plants you sent me were large, healthy and priced right. I'm very excited to watch them get established. Thank you all!!
