Default Sword melt?

I just got my hands on a Indian Red Sword the arrived after more than a week in the mail. I put it in the tank as sure as possible it's leaves started to melt away. I know this is normal for crypts to readjust to the different water parameters, but I never heard or seen a sword do this. Will it come back like crypts or is it doomed? My red melon sword didn't do this at all, in fact it put out three new leaves 6 days after planting it in dirt.

Do swords and crypts have the same root style? Crypts seem to have a more tuber like structure to store loads of energy to recover while swords don't. Could this make a difference whether it will come back or not?
