Maybe this is kind of stupid, but is this plant edible? (eat-able?)

    To you, it tastes horrible but to the fishes, it tastes nice.

    NO.
    It's NOT an actual onion.

    It's poisonous if ingested. Most fish and other aquatic life leave it ALONE due to the fact, that it doesn't taste good to them.

    Hoped I helped! :D

I recently bought micro sword online to add to my 29 Gallon fresh water aquarium. They came in 6 little bunches that looked pretty bad when they came but as they started to mature in my tank they spread like weeds and gave my tank a great natural look. I have a 20 watt POWER-GLO which promotes coral, invertebrate and plant growth. I also added a CO2 defuser to my tank which i feel really promotes plant growth. I am very pleased with the look MicroSword has given my aquarium and would highly recommend this for any planted aquarium.

    I feel the same way. If you look around at pet shops you'll notice the differ-ence in condition, sizes and prices of plants. They are slow growing but are very easy to grow. They remain small and make wonderful front plants. If you plant them close together, they fill in nicely. They also wave ever so gently with the current in the tank. "Deborah DeRosa"

    Hi I've got a question about that plant. I have got 79.4 Gallon tank no CO2 injection yet, but fine grain Prodac gravel made especially for plants and 160Watt T8 tubes. 3 of them are Osram 840, one is Grolux sylvania for plants and one is Filips Aqua relle. Do you think that in that conditions I can grow sword grass?

lots of people think it makes for untidy looking aqaariums, but i love the charm. If it is happy, it will spread like mad, but is easily scooped out if it gets out of control. It will also shade out plants below it, so plant high light demand plants in areas where surface is disturbed by a filter, which will also push away the duckweed. The fish will appreciate the shade, but duckweed tends to gather in the stillest water of the tank surface, which is also where many people choose to feed their fish. also, unfortunatley, it gets fried in high light situations.

my final advice would be to buy some, and you will find out quickly if this is the plant for you.

After not having duck weed something terrible has happened! My guppy tank has heaps of it! It's coming from literally nowhere! Full clean out! Check every leaf and all duckweed is in another tank, suddenly a few days later, heaps of duckweed again.

Water onions are the only plant that my fish won`t eat. They grow great. The only problem is that I can`t find anymore here. Orange Park Fl

these are certainly slow growers, and are slow to establish. they require essentially no care whatsoever, and are difficult to kill. i would absolutely recommend growing this on a nice piece of bogwood with some java fern in front of each other. the two were just meant to be together, and the anubias will be happier with its main root exposed.

This plant is one of my favorites. It's so pretty and bright green. It seems to be sensitive to substrate and water conditions though. My African Cichlids seem to tear up just about everything, but they leave this plant alone.

I have 2 amazon swords in my 55 gal tank and they take up about a third of it each. They are a beautiful and easy to care for plant. I have about 3 1/2 inches of eco complete substrate on the bottom and 4 - 4 foot fluorescent tubes above. My 2 siamese algae eaters love lounging on the large leaves. A must have plant but they do grow quite large.

    I have had my two Amazon Swords in my fancy goldfish 55-gallon tank for about 3 months now and they have been doing well. All of a sudden, they both developed reddish-brown spots all over the older outer leaves. Have you ever had that happen? They have plenty of roots now and one has produced a shoot with new baby plants on it that I will anchor to the bottom of the tank as they grow larger. I was concerned there might be a disease so I cut off all the leaves with spots on them. What do you think is going on? any reply would be appreciated. thanks.

I'm glad I found this site. I bought a water lily from my local fish shop and put it in my 4ft tank 3 months ago. I knew nothing about w/lily care until now. I don't have time for a 'winter hiatus' but I will see what happens.
