Amazon Sword: A Beautiful Addition to Your Fish Tank


Looking to add some greenery to your aquarium? Then consider the Amazon Sword Echinodorus amazonicus as your next aquarium plant! This stunning plant is the perfect addition to any aquarium, whether you're a seasoned pro or just starting out.


One great benefit of the Amazon Sword is that it's an excellent oxygenator. This means it can help to keep your fish healthy by increasing the oxygen levels in the water. Plus, it's a natural filter that can help to keep your fish tank clean by absorbing toxins and other harmful substances.


We offer the Amazon Sword aquarium plant in bare root form. Bare root plants are a more economical way to buy aquarium plants as they don't come with all the extra packaging that potted plants do. Plus, bare root plants are typically easier to care for as they can be planted directly into your substrate without any fuss.


One of the reasons why the Amazon Sword is so popular with fish tank enthusiasts is that it's relatively easy to care for. It can thrive in a variety of water parameters and lighting conditions, making it a great choice for beginners. Plus, it's a hardy plant that can withstand a lot of wear and tear, making it ideal for larger fish tanks with active fish.

So if you're looking to add some color and natural filtration to your aquarium, then be sure to check out our beautiful Amazon Swords! Shop now for a beautiful way to decorate your fish tank.
