Echinodorus tenellus is also called micro sword right?? I just pulled out about 10 - 15 if not more of it out of my 10 gallon at work. I'll happily send it over to you. Or I can meet you in the city during work hours (I work in midtown)

On another note.. Ramawo: Have any more of the spiral vals?

"Micro sword" usually refers to Lilaeopsis brasiliensis.

(The common name for Helanthium tenellum (former E. tenellus) is pygmy chain sword.)

It's not the same as Nymsley mentioned, but I've been wondering about Microsword myself. The reason I was looking for tellenus and Dwarf Sag is because I wanted a grass plant where the leaves curl over, but Microsword from what I've seen is straighter and only curls at the tips. Then again, it seems like a number of Lilaeopsis species are sold simply as "Microsword", so I don't really know. What's yours like?

Is the change to Helanthium widely accepted now? I heard about it a few years back, but there were some debates on it if I remember correctly.
