The small Echinoduras have me really puzzled.   I have tenellus, it
dwindles away in my tanks.  I bought a bunch (50 leaves) for $5 as
micro sword at Albany Aquarium.  Typical leaf (with petiole) 1mmx30mm

I have E. quadricostatus I got from George Booth.  Light green color,
many runners, seems to be doing ok so far.  Typical leaf 3mmx60mm

Then  I have something else.  Bigger that the above, but still quite
small.  Looks like amazonicus, but much smaller.  Typical leaf
12mmx120mm.  Any suggestions what this is?
