Narrow Leaf Chain Sword

Echinodorus tenellus or Narrow Leaf Chain Sword is a hardy species of aquatic plant that can be used to cover the foreground of your aquarium provided the appropriate conditions. This plant will spread through your tank using horizontal runners.

This species of plant thrives best using a nutrient rich soil with additional fertilization (our preferred soil is the Brightwell line and it can be found by clicking here). If not provided with enough nutrients it can decrease the ability of this plant to spread. Inclusion of CO2 in the aquarium will increase the plants ability to grow.

*Rapid changes in tank parameters can result in the melting of the plant

You will receive one (1) potted plant, Portion size may vary. 

Scientific Name: Echinodorus tenellus

Light Requirements: Medium to High

Care Level: Easy/Medium

Note: Please do additional research on your plant to ensure it's health. Propagation of this plant is achieved by cutting runners and replanting them in the substrate or allowing it to travel naturally.

 *All Plants may contain snails or snail eggs. We keep them in all of our tanks for the benefits they provide.*

Good Quality Plant At a Good Price

Plant arrived in a timely fashion in good shape I've had it in the pot it came in for over a week and it's doing well. Some of the leaves melted, but it's already got a runner on it and it's ready to move to it's new home.
