Just a nother "what is this" post ;)


I thought this looked like a nice center piece type plant, but the pet store just got them in and the person didn't look up what it was yet. Thanks to the laziness of the younger people, I got it for the price of a bundle of anacharis since that was the only other plant in that tank.

Anyone know the name of this plant so I can look it up? (the bright green one in the middle of the picture)



Thank you

The melon swords I have all have red leaves when starting new leaves, but that can be do to having clay under them.

The leaves are very similar to Echinodorus Uruguayensis.

Thanks all, I'll do some "Googling" and see which one looks the closest.
