Hi, new here but am amazed at the wealth of information already! I'm setting up a new 55g and have a question about one of my plants that I purchased from the LFS. It was labeled as a micro chain sword but the worker didn't sound confident. Is it an actual micro chain sword, or something else?

I have a 55 gallon tank with 4 4' t5 6500k bulbs on it. I'm not venturing into the world of CO2 at this time. Think it will grow ok?

That is sufficiently light for just about anything. If they are t5HO you are going to have too much light and will likely have problems with algae.
