Placeing order need help...
Hi all I am going to redo one of my 10 gallon tanks because I am just not likeing the way it looks it is a tall tank and measures 15 inch high X 15 inch wide X 9 inch deep. Right now it has an Amazon Sword which is to big, a Cryptocoryn Weditt and some floating pennywort. I plan on ordering one of the 6 Small Sword Bulk Plant packages from sweetaquatics and these are the swords I am thinking about. I know all of them may not go into this tank but what I am trying to douple check is that all of these are smaller swords. I pulled up info on each one and just want to make sure my research is correct.
E. Kleiner Prinz
E. Angustifolia Vesuvius
E. Osiris (Melon Sword)
E. Indian Red
E. Kleiner Bar
E. Parviflorious
E. Quadricostatus
E. Tenellus
I relise the last two are very similar and I only plan on getting one or the other unless I decide to put one kind in one tank and the other in one of the other tanks.

This is only my opinion so don't take my word as the gold standard, but in my experience a Kleiner Bar, Melon and Indian Red get too big for a 10. At least they did in my 10. I had to move them over to my 100. I've not grown the other swords you have listed, so no experience from me as far as those species are concerned.

As far as I know. :)

Echinodorus species have variable heights depending on light, but those shouldn't get TOO big.

Alrighty then I can always move them to the bigger tanks if they get to big or I could just put the ones that may out grow it into one of the 45 gallon tank to begin with and use the others in the 10 gallon. ; )
