Default Re: Echinodorus species experiences?

Most Echinodorus also grow huge. Not in this genus but very closely related and staying small would be Helanthium species and the asian Ranalisma rostratum. H. bolivianum and R. rostratum grow well in "regular" vivarium light.
But all those species don't have any colourful patterns, they're just green.

I would also look into Cryptocoryne. There are a lot of species and breeds that have intensive colours and patterns. They also grow in low light, even prefer it.

Other plants that come to my mind and don't necessarily grow huge, tolerate wet to moist climate and have intensive colours and patterns are: Argostemma, Begonia, Fittonia. Argostemma are not really easy to come by though.
