Hi I am due to plant my aquarium tomorrow. I have bought a few different plants but I need help with the amazon sowrds.

I plan to plant the amazon swords one in each corner of the aquarium. How far from the glass should I plant the swords?
Any advice would be great cheers ninjascape

Not sure what the general rule is, if such exists... One of my Amazons in particular is absolutely humongous. Essentially outgrowing the tank. You can see it here. I planted it about 13-15 cm from the back glass and I continuously trim of the leaves that just goes up against the back glass - those leaves are not going to thrive anyway.

Cheers,
Michael

As noted by the other posters, this is not something you ever need to worry about. Amazon swords do not really care where they are planted relative to the glass.

Cheers,
