I bought six of these hoping to have lots of bushy plants to fill in space in one of my tanks. While it is a good height and the colors are as depicted, the leaves are not nearly as bunched as they are shown in the product picture. In fact, the leaves stop about two and a half inches before the weight, so there's three awkwardly skinny little sticks holding these big bunches of leaves. Unless you bury the weight in gravel or sand, it might be acceptable looking, but otherwise they don't look as good sitting on top of substrate or on bare bottom tanks like mine.
Pretty but not soft enough for a Betta

I bought a couple of these for my Betta since they need silk plants. They're pretty but definitely not silk They have sharp edges on the leaves as well as on the back where the stems are attached. Betta's would easily rip their fins on these. If you don't have to worry about the plant being soft, they're nice looking.

I love how full it is and how it sways under the filter. Looks good and a very decent price. I can't wait to see my fishies swimming through it!

Bought this for my Betta tank. The leaves are big enough that my beta can actually rest on them. So not only does it look good but it gives my Betta unlimited choices of resting areas.
