What water conditions do they require?
Echinodorus bleherii, often called the Amazon sword, is easy to care for and is a great plant for beginners. It is advised that this aquatic plant be planted in a loose substrate, small grain gravel or speciality planting substrates are the best choices. Amazon sword plants thrive when given doses of iron rich fertiliser weekly after water changes and without adding CO2 to the aquarium water. This plant will benefit from having a high quality LED light but do not provide too much light, as the leaves are susceptible to algae growth. Any algae build-up on the leaves should be very gently wiped away during water changes.
