Narrow Leaf Chain sword (Echinodorus tennelus) AKA the Pygmy Chain Swordplant. Rosette plant with 1-2 mm wide, grasslike leaves. Very prolific. Ideal groundcover plant. Color in shaded areas green, is bright light reddish. Under the right conditions, especially intense lighting, a dense and low “cushion” made of runners will form after only a short time. In aquariums over 50 cm in height, care has to be taken to ensure adequate lighting of the foreground because the delicate plants will otherwise perish. This foreground plant will quickly form a nice carpet of foliage over a fine gravel or sand substrate, which is best.
