Help Me Find a Good Home for Monster Sword Plant

I am trying to make a little more room in my 125G and decided to remove my monster sword plant. I believe it is a Melon Sword (I bought it as a Red Flame sword but it is obviously not red at all :P ). From the pic you can see that it is close to 1 1/2 feet tall and just about as wide and is in prime health. It will require a large tank to keep it. I would like to give it away to someone who can give it a good home. I hope this is the right forum for something like this - I figured if I put it here it would get to the right people. Please PM me if you are interested. Thanks

You're going to need at least a 55G for this one, and that might be cutting it close. It's not even full grown yet

That is a beautiful sword. I would love a plant like that for my 125gallon tank.

There are quite a few if I was to split it but I'd like to keep it whole because it took so long to get it this way. It's sort of my baby and I would hate to break it up, call me sentimental :P

Well FawnN it's yours if you want it. Please let me know as there are a few others who expressed interest, but you've got first choice

I just had to let everyone know what an awesome looking plant I got from Travis. The picture doesn't do the sword justice.

Thanks so much for the plant Travis.

That is an impressive sword plant but I prefer to "adopt" mine when they are younger and haven't picked up any bad habits
