there leves kinda went brown already :[
That is common with many species. As long as there is new growth of green leaves, no problem.

So I guess that is a Saggitaria at the left; hard to tell without flowers.

Big plants are hungry plants, do you fertilise?

I'd say plan on getting some root tabs for that sword plant ASAP.

Wouldnt small plants mean hungry plants? If they are big, they must be getting lots of nutrients from somewhere meaning they are not hungry?

Two things on this.

First, when plants are put into a new environment (changes in light, water parameters) they frequentlyt lose existing leaves. With the sword, if new growth is appearing from the centre of the crown of the plant, all is probably well.

Second, what liquid fertilizer are you using? You can keep plants healthy with only liquid fertilizer provided it is a complete one. I did for 15 years. I use Seachem's Flourish Comprehensive [make sure it is the Comprehensive, they make several products in the Flourish line]. Nutrafin's Plant-Gro should also work if you can't get Flourish Comprehensive.

A third issue is the light. We may have covered this elsewhere.

Not saying the amazon sword requires root tabs, but wanted to clarify.

I said the large plant would be hungry because if it came from sweet aquatics, it came from a soil substrate. It's been in a nutrient-heavy atmosphere for possibly quite a while, and root tabs would be beneficial IMO.
