Echinodorus Argentinensis is commonly known as the Argentine Sword. It is a well-known, true aquatic plant from tropical South America.
Similar to all other Echinodorus species, it is a heavy root feeder which means it does best when planted in a rich nutrient-based substrate. It is considered a beginner aquatic plant and famous among fish breeders because its long and bushy leaf provides many covers for small fishes to call home.
Echinodorus Argentinensis is suitable for Discus aquarium and many other fishes such as Angelfish, Cichlid, etc often lay eggs on the Argentine Sword leaf.
