Qualities aquarium hobbyists love – attractive, easy to maintain, eco-friendly, and natural. Excellent at absorbing nutrients to inhibit algae growth. Ideal for fish of all sizes and small crustaceans.
Some consumers reported murky water when they first put them in their tanks. Several issues of moss balls that were dry or had brown spots upon arrival.
Natural-looking, colorful artificial plant with soft leaves that make it a good choice for small and delicate fish like Bettas. We love its sturdy weighted base that keeps it in place.
A few owners expected it to be larger, while others complained that their fish paid no attention to it.
A value-priced pack of 3 artificial plants. More than 10" tall – provides coverage for fish, and an affordable way to decorate an aquarium. Many consumers report happy fish "hanging out" around them.
A bit flimsy and "fake" looking. Plant bases don't provide enough weight for all aquariums, but covering them in gravel helps. A few issues of green coloring fading in water.
Low maintenance and easy to anchor. Hardy once it's established, and produces vivid dark green leaves. "Clean" – doesn't tend to cause murky water.
While many happy customers love this aquatic fern, several received plants that were dry, brown, and/or dead on arrival.
Large and realistic looking. Has wide leaves that provide hiding places for timid fish. Practical for use in terrariums. Users rave about how attractive it looks in their tanks.
A few reports of the color fading and leaves shedding over time. Has some pointed pieces that may be unsafe for some delicate fish like Bettas. Has a "plastic" odor upon arrival – soaking prior to use helps.
