     Yep, I got mine from Delaware Aquatic Imports also--10 plants for $12 
     or so.  They grow pretty darn fast in bright light and 10 ppm CO2, but 
     mine stay red.
     I also have the larger variety of E. tenellus, but it has bright green 
     leaves, 1/4" wide and 4-5" long, purchased locally.
