Such Thing as Small Echinodorus?

Hi all,
I'm looking for a small species of sword plant for a 10 gallon low tech.
Does anyone know of a particular species/variant that stays less than 8 inches tall?
If not a particular species, has anyone noticed if certain chain store, i.e. PetSmartCo, sell regular amazon sword plants that tend to stay smaller due to poorer genetics or something?

E. Tennelus- it stays fairly small and carpets/spreads nice.
Vesuvius is easy to grow, looks very unique, and stays under 12" tall.
Echinodorus Opacus - special
1"-2" oval shaped leaves, grows very slow.
Very hard to find.
I have a few left over from the old days! And I always keep them front and center :)
I had some echinodorus oriental a while back that stayed between 8" and 12". Nice plant which grew pink leaves as they came out.
