The sword is a great plant that is easy to take care of but it will out grow your tank as james said. If you get stem plants such as pennywort, wisteria, and hornwort just to name a few you can trim them to keep them the hight you need for your tank and the trimming can either be replanted in your tank or given away or sold or tossed in the trash. As for swords some of the ones that you could use are E. Kleiner Prinz, E. Angustifolia Vesuvius, E. Osiri (Melon Sword), E. Indian Red, E. Kleiner Bar, E. Parviflorious, E. Quadricostatus, E. Tenellus. Another plant type of plant that would work great for you tank is cryptocoryne walkeri it comes in three colors bronze, red, and green and is a low light plant that is very eay to take care of. If you are interested in ordering the plants online a good place alot of us use are sweetaquatics. com and aquariumplants.com they are very reliable and sweetaquatics has really good shipping prices. You will probably find like I did that it is cheaper to buy online even with the shipping than it is from the local LFS.
