I went to the LFS to buy some Echinodorus tenellus and came home with 2 unlabeled plants that I thought were Echinodorus tenellus. I'm pretty sure they are different. I thought the smaller one was just sickly, a lot of the plants in this store aren't coming in great lately, but when I unpacked them from the wool, well, they just didn't feel the same.





These are large images, so I think clicking will zoom them. (mmm, clicking doesn't zoom them...)

Thanks!

The Echinodorus tenellus I have from Tropica No.067 year 1998 looks very different than the plants on your pictures. Tropica later renamed the plant to Helanthium tenellum ‘green’.
Yeah, that's what I was expecting it to look like. It was hard to really see it in the tank and they had some, labeled, just a few days ago so I took a chance.

I'll likely pull it out of the dry start tank and putting it directly into my nano, I won't mind the slow parva growth there.
