I bought this sword off of ebay as an amazon sword. But I'm thinking that's not accurate.

This is the sword (http://cgi.ebay.com/AMAZON-SWORD-PLANT-Short-Live-Aquarium-Plant_W0QQitemZ260577060593QQcmdZViewItemQQptZLH_D efaultDomain_0?hash=item3cab9a66f1) that I bought and it's the same seller.

This is what I think it is and what it actually looks like. 'compacta' (http://cgi.ebay.com/Echinodorus-bleheri-Compacta-SMALL-SWORD-live-plant_W0QQitemZ290411480930QQcmdZViewItemQQptZLH_D efaultDomain_0?hash=item439ddf8762)

Okay, as I was feeding the fish and watching everything I was looking MUCH closer at my swords and I think I'm closer to figuring out what these are. LOL

A while back on my journal thread MCHRkiller had mentioned that Mike (the seller) grows his swords emersed instead of immersed. I can see some new leaves coming in that are totally different. Much longer and a bit narrower. Not so stemmy and wide leaved. I guess since I hadn't had issues with the leaves dying back or melting I thought maybe they were normal immersed leaves. I was evidently wrong. LOL

No laughing please. (blush) I'm laughing enough at myself.
