Based on the coloration in those pictures it does look like an amazon sword. Once some submerged growth appears that can help confirm or deny. I think you'll be ok putting the sword in your 55 if it is an amazon. Those really don't require much light.

I just picked up 2 of these in a packet, ill grow them out as well, mabey we can get 2 different perspectives going here, that could help id it, i also agree with the rose sword though.

Unless you have a ton of light CO2 isn't needed. What is your lighting?

You're fine without CO2.

I upgraded my lighting to 2 26 watt 6500k CFLs and added DIY co2. It has grown 3 new leaves this week. Can't believe the difference!

I think its melon sword. Echinodorus osiris. Having leaves like e. cordifolius the difference is just reddish leaves. :3

Here it is.
I also found a snail. Which is weird since I have never seen one in the 3 weeks I've had this plant. I'm kind of glad though since I was thinking of going to the store to get some so I can put them in my 55g to dig through the sand. Hopefully I find some more!!

The new leaves come in red and turn green when they get bigger.
