BTW the red pointier plant in your tank with the male has issues. They have metal inside them if you keep it in there you will either want remove the metal and reassemble or you will want to seal it well with aquarium glue so no metal could be exposed. Some people found them rusting. I have them myself and I plan to remove the metal and glue it back together.

oh no! I have 4 of these red ones and I also have 2 of the dark green version and 2 of the light green version. They were made by marina and came in their silk plant pack. it included one red, one green and then 2 of the long ones...sword plants?

I have ordered new silk plants for both tanks to replace the marina ones. I don't want to leave my fish plantless :(

oh nooo I just realized they weren't marina. They ARE the topfin ones D: I remember now I almost bought the Marina ones but put them back and got the Topfin because they were cheaper. I've had these plants for 4 months now!

You don't neccessarily have to get rid of them, you can use the aquarium sealant as JadaBlu said, or you can use the cheaper and easier method of hot glue. Hot glue is non-toxic, and it can easily be used to seal any points where the metal may be showing through. :)
