    I'm looking for recommendations for a red Echinodorus as the specimen plant for my tank. I'm looking for something that will grow to around 12" tall, maybe a little more. In one of my Dennerle books, I found Echinodorus 'Red Senna', which looks ideal, however it looks like its only available in...

    I have an Echinodorus osiris which has grown a long flower stem, coming two feet out of the water, which now has lots of shoots on. How do I deal with it to get some new plants from this? Should the stem be under or out of the water? Any help gratefully received.

    Hi Folks, My first post as new member. So Had my Echinodorus about 6 weeks in low tech setup. He seemed fine until I noticed some leaves were browning/yellowing out from the bottom. When I investigated all of the leaves( even the lush green ones) just fell of at the base. On further...

    I need to move these out of my tank soon as they are starting to crowd out the fish. Echinodrus Horemanii - Bunch with 20 leaves x 10-12 in in length.

    Hi there! I have an Amazon Sword Plant in a 10 G, which I moved from a 5 a few months ago. It was doing very well and flourishing in the 5, but in the 10 it hasn't been looking so great (I've also been having more algae problems, I'm not sure of the specific type of algae - it's green and...

    This sword is about 7-8 years old, 26" tall from the bottom of the root mass to the tip of the longest, 3" wide leaves. He'll make a stunning red centerpiece to any extra-large tank if maintained properly. I made a little photo essay for reddit about him when I removed him from his tank, so you...
