Quick Friday video. I am trying to show here how hardy swords are. I am debating whether or not to take this big amazon sword down to only 4-6 leaves. I am hacking it away, just to show how easily they grow back (and better). The goal is to make some room for some other plants that I haven't really decided on yet....Swords that are well rooted and "fed" can take the hard cutting.

I have 4 species of Amazon Swords, Indian Red Swords, Kleiner bar swords, and whatever else looks fun

The Amazon biotope aquarium is a popular set up kept by numerous aquarists, from beginners to experts. Most beginners start out with community aquariums with fish and plants from all corners of the world, but keeping a biotope aquarium is by no means more difficult than keeping an international community aquarium. If you are a beginner, you should therefore not hesitate to set up an Amazon biotope aquarium, as long as you are okay with sticking to sturdy plants and fish species from the Amazon region until you gain more experience. Setting up a biotope aquarium is actually ideal for a beginner since all plants and fishes will need exactly the same water conditions, water temperature etcetera to thrive. So, what is a biotope aquarium? As you might have guessed already, a biotope aquarium is simply an aquarium containing plants and animals from the same biotope. An Amazon biotope aquarium will for instance only contain plants and fish native to the Amazon region in South America. Light
The sun is very strong in tropical South America, but as mentioned above the water in the Amazon region is often very dark due to high levels of humic acid. The water is also shadowed by overhanging lush vegetation in most parts of the Amazonas. If you want to keep light craving plants in your Amazon biotope aquarium you will need 2-3 tubes with spectrums for plant growth that stretches the entire length of the aquarium and comes with proper reflectors. If you do not have a lot of light, stick to low-demanding Amazon plant species.
