Oh, pets at home told me to tie them to the rock, so I did this with fishing line. I will cut the line and get them in the gravel. I will leave them to grow naturally then, if they're hardy. Any signs of them struggling and I'll look to getting the tabs you suggested.

It's definitely going to be a betta but thanks for the suggestion. I may be getting my hands on a much bigger tank soon so that'll be my community tank.

Thanks

    Amazon swords are heavy root feeders, root tabs will give you good growth although you will also need a carbon source like easy carbo

    I've now planted the roots under the gravel. Thanks jjb for pointing that out to me. Also spaced the decorations out a little bit, I think it looks tidier now.



    Not sure if you can make it out from that picture but the front leaf has some brown towards the tip. Is this just because it's in a new tank? Or is it in need of root tabs? Or something else?

    Thanks

    Brown patches on leaves is normal, leave age and die, they also need to get used to the new water and adapt, it wont be the first brown leaf :) if it continues to deteriorate whip the leaf off before it starts to rot in the tank.
