I just pulled this out of...

...my 29 gallon tank!




I'm doing some pruning and pulling, in preparation for this weekend's club meeting. I knew this Ruffle Sword (Echinodorus martii) was large, as it has been bending over the top of the water for a couple of weeks now, but didn't really think it was this big!
It's too big for my tank anymore. Hopefully it goes to a good home with a tall(er) tank!

Thanks for looking!

Wow...Thats a big sword! I have an E. Martii in my 55gal and it's doing just fine but I'm hoping it'll get HUGE. Yours is a very nice plant though!

Right, I suppose that wavy leaf margin is diagnostic.

I thought it was a crypt at first.
