The plant looks good in the tank. It fills it out nicely without looking crowded.

Swords are pretty hardy ^_^ and in lower lights it will grow slower so you don't have to worry too much about it over growing your tank. Also it's heavy root feeders so I suggest you getting root tabs of sorts so it can stay healthy, otherwise it kind of gets...floppy lol

Haha, yea I just went out and bought 2 more 10 gallons today....and I got a 20 gal long last week which will very soon be a sorority once I get the rest of the stuff for it next week. Plus all the stuff I've been buying for breeding....and I've got 6 fish being mailed to me on Monday...I'm up to my ears in fish stuff! I always go to the extremes, especially with animals haha...I can't just have one betta... I've gotta have 20, and I can't just have pets, I've gotta breed them....the joys of being a bored stay at home mom... Haha.

Compacta isn't actually a "dwarf" subspecies of the Amazon Sword, it literally is an Amazon sword just a younger one is all. Just another ploy for stores to get money.
