I would agree with Ludwigia, now that I have more info. Check the profile (click the shaded names for profiles).

The other plant is most likely a terrestrial, and probably Spathiphyllum wallisii, common name Peace Lily. This plant will apparently last submersed for many months, sometimes even years, according to Peter Hiscock. But not always, so keep an eye on it; if it starts rotting, pull it out.

A true sword, like Echinodorus amazonicus, would do well.

The aquarist is one who must learn the ways of the biologist, the chemist, and the veterinarian. [unknown source]

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]

I've already lost two leaves to my algae eaters... So I have a funny feeling the plant won't get to that point...
