    You are good on everything except for the sword, which may be echinodorus Rubin instead of bleheri.

    Not seeing any red on mine like the Rubin seems to have?
    Is the Rotala Rotundifolia supposed to float or be rooted in the substrate?
    Thanks for the confirmation!

    rubin gets its purple red color only in optimal conditions. a bleheri sword has much pointier leaf tips,
    less pronounced veins on the leaf, and the leaves do not form a rosette like a rubin(they tend to form a more fan shaped plant).
    you can actually see hints of red on your plant, something which amazon(bleheri) swords don't have.

    rotala rotundifolia should be planted in gravel.

    Awsome! Thanks! I got this one from Walmart. Was desparate. They labeled it as aquarium plant, lol. Anything I can do to help it and my others? The other 3 I just got from someone on craigslist. That is why they look pretty sad. I tied the moss to the lava rock with fishing line.
