most sword plants like the Echinodorus Bleheri,
get very large, even small ones, I think many need higher lighting.
This place says at least a 20gallon tank
Echinodorus bleheri, Amazon Sword Plant
A couple of the other ones seem to need higher lighting also, which would be like 50w+ or so on a 10G I would imagine(depends on the fixture/reflector).
Please dont take my words for fact as I'm not an expert by far
Do you have any "real" fish stores near you that may have some plants? I know the one I go to doesn't have much.
