5 Shaving Brush plants
I am curious as to what these are. I have not heard of these before.

Most livestock is shipped overnight so your order since it was placed in the evening was shipped the following day for next day delivery.

When you get your order please put a post in the General Retilers area describing your order experence so other members can benifit from your experence.

I look forward to photos....

Expecially of those Brush plants.

Shaving Brush Plant pics

someday, I may learn how to take good pictures, until then.......

I like the looks of this plant, very full, looks like a miniature tree. I did notice that my big Hermit Crab thought that climbing the stalk was great fun. I am sure he was just cleaning it, but am also not sure if this will become problematic.

Hara,

If you are willing, would you post an update telling how your Shaving Brushes are doing. I added several to my tank some time ago and all too soon had to remove them because they were coming apart and making a general mess in the tank. I am not able to say why they did not hold up in my tank, unfortunately. They were under NO lighting.... very possibly the reason for my less than satisfactory experience with them.

Sue

actually, I am having the same experience right now as you did. I have written the people that I had gotten them from, asking them about it. I know, that as a general rule, plants get stressed out the same way that fish do. I am hoping that this is just a temporary setback.

I know that when I opened the bag that they were in, the odor that was in there was absolutely vile. I rinsed the plants off before putting them in the tank so maybe that added to the problem.

I will let you know what they tell me.

when you say you rinsed them off. You used saltwater or fresh?

Moved back into the S/W general forum. Mark, when you split a topic it defaults to send it to the lounge.

Not really an algae kind of guy, but wouldn't it be wise to wash in F/W, I know alot of F/W plants are rinsed in S/W to remove unwanted critters...Course in S/W we usually want the critters associated with macro algae, just curious as to why it is a problem.
