I out to get a picture of the regular variety of E. parviflorus on a web
page somewhere to show the graceful form of these swords.

To me, the leaves of the Tropica variety look shortened and twisted as
though the plant wasn't getting all the nutrients it needed.  (Perhaps a
smidgeon of calcium deficiency) I refer to the picture in Kasselmann, as
well as various others on web pages of plant retailers. I also think that
the variagated forms of plants also look diseased. (Actually, they are.)  I
think that fancy goldfish look like gastly, unfortunate mutants that ought
to be put out of their misery.  I don't even like long-finned zebra danios.

So there!
