I got these at the LFS today and the first one had the name tag thing but the other one did not and now that I have them home and in the tank they don't look the same to me. If they are not can you guys tell me what the second one is.
The first one said its a Rosette Sword or Echinodorus Parviflorus :

I'm no plant expert but the second one looks like some kind of Crypt.

I think the first one is dwarf sword (the one you wanted ;) ) and the second is definately a crypt...
Maybe Crypt Wendtii green?

I agree. Not sure of the crypt species from the photo, but it is a crypt.

My Cryptocoryne parva looks exactly like the plant in your photo. If I was a betting person I would say that it was indeed Cryptocoryne parva.

Thanks everyone. I am glad at least one of them was the plant I intended to get. LOL They are both really small right now and either way I really like all the cryptocoryne species I have had up until now so one more won't be a bad thing.

I love the rosette sword. I have 5 or 6 in my 120g. And yes, I agree. The 2nd is a crypt. I like these because once they are settled, they really take off. Make sure to pick a place for it that you like though. Crypts don't do well being moved around.

Thanks Lisa yes I know that they don't like to be moved I also have them in my 55 gallon one of my other 10 gallons and my 20 gallon. I love that they come in different colors and styles and are super easy to take care of.
