        Healthy and beautiful

        Arrived healthy despite cold weather here is Ca currently (03/02/23). Packaging helps pants stay alive.

        Betta loves it

        Betta loves being nestled between the plants like a security blanket, bit hard to get the cut plants to stay in the substrate during initial aquascaping but it was my first time making a planted tank so that was probably just me. Also, no snails!
