This being the case, don't expect the sword to last. Echinodorus are very heavy feeders, and I can see some yellowing on the newer
leaf growth which is a sign of insufficient nutrients. Dying off of the older outer leaves is to be expected after moving the plant, but the innedr new leaves should remain green, darkening as they mature.
I would use Flourish Comprehensive once weekly, and also consider Flourish tabs with one placed next to the roots every 3 months. The root tabs make a real difference to swords. But as some nutrients must be taken up via the leaves, you need the liquid too. Liquid alone can suffice, usually.
