Echinodorus Bleheri (Amazon Sword) has dark green to lime green leaves and is a great background plant. It it easy to keep but does need pruning to prevent depriving plants underneath it of light as the Amazon Sword does grow really rather huge. Flow should also be accounted for as particularly strong flow can cause damage to the large leaves as they flap in the current. Good quality fertiliser and substrate will go a long way with this plant, keeping leaves uniform colour and without any blotches. We wouldn't recommend this plant for small aquariums as it will take up too much space. In larger aquariums, they are great for hiding filters, heaters and other aquarium equipment.
