Re: Second request, how to deal with Amazon swords
I didn't get any responses to my first inquiry, so I am trying again. I
really need to know if Amazon sword plants (E. Amazonicus? -- your regular
kind, not a variety that stays small) can be contained somehow, or are only
meant for very large tanks. I have a 38 gallon that is about 90% full of
plants thanks to Amazon sword "takeover". Is there a way to prune them so
that they still survive and look good? It is overshadowing everything else
in the tank. I really like the way it looks, but in a short time I think I
am going to end up with an "Amazon sword tank" instead of a planted aquarium.
If there is some way to control this monster, then great! But if not, I
would like it to go to a good home -- I need to trade it for something,
because it is going to leave a huge hole if I have to take it out.
