Smile Amazon Sword Plant?

I have been reading up on this plant, and I would like to know if anyone has one?

If so, what kind of light do you recommend for this plant?

I've had them before, you will want a tank at least 18 inches tall, they do not require high light. 1.5-2 watts per gallon and they can live. Any daylight spectrum florescent will do for lighting.

alright I have a 10 watt bulb in my 2.5, will that be fine? And I use the FloraPride drops from Tetra, do you think those will help? Thanks for the info :)

Oh, that's cool, I really love how the leaves look like that, and from reading about them, they really aren't hard to care for. Do you have any more live plants?

I have dwarf hairgrass and green wendth. I just got done planting the tank, as soon as the stuff settles I'll have to take a picture. I think the tank turned out pretty good :)

I agree I love the leaves on the amazon sword plant. When she showed it to me I was like "I gota have that!" I'm using this as part of my method of fighting algae lol. I'm going to get two or three otos tomorrow lol.

It will do well with your setup. It will not be fully submerged, but that's ok, It can do both :)
