	I don't know what it is or what the origin was but it is a
beautiful plant. The new leaves are a pretty dark pink (what would be
called red for most other plants) the medium old leaves are blood red and
the really old leaves are anubias green! A wonderful plant!! It seems to
have thicker leaves than most of the echinodorus and maybe it will tolerate
rougher algae eaters too. (I wouldn't risk it unless you have money to
burn!) Anyway, buy them if you find them!! For those of you in Columbus,
OH, Aquarium Adventure has them but they are $25 a piece! I am sure you can
order them from somewhere for a little less but these are some nice plants
at the store.
