Yes swords get huge, I'd switch it to the bigger tank.

Hah, if you could see my desk at work, you'd know this is not a good option I was honestly kinda worried about its' ability to support the 3.

I have a baby sword in QT at home, so in a week or so I'll see about pulling the current one and taking it to my big tank at home, and giving Chicory the smaller one. Time to replace the boat with something else anyway.

The algae is retreating, which makes it look much less dire/more open in the tank

(PS,I give the plants a shot of API leaf Zone with a water change every other week)

(PPS, I do water changes more frequently than every other week, it's just the Leaf Zone gets added once every other week)

The Boy Feesh: Indigo CT, Lavatail CT, Ghost CT, Chicory HM, Redfish VT, Magic DT
The Girl Feesh: Christmas
CT, Shine VT, Snowflake CT, Stripes VT, Midnight CT, Grif VT, Tangerine VT, Wraith CT, Amethyst VT, Ice CT, Poe CT, Turquoise II CT

Oh man, I hope my sword does that!!! It's medium sized and I have it in a corner of my 29g. It already has 2 new leaves in the two weeks it's been there, so that's exciting!

I've never heard of this Leaf Zone? I use Seachem Flourish complete, but have only used it once in the 2 weeks and I only added 1/3 the dose :X I do have Eco complete substrate though.

My otos really like hanging out on the big leaves :)
