Well, I wanted to get some plants for our tank. Not sure what they are though so I'm not sure they will be staying.

Any help identifying them would be great.

If they all turn out to be swords I will probably be keeping them all for now. Definitely agree on #1 and #2 after comparing to pictures, but can't find one like 3. :-/

Now, for the next question. Thing all of these will do well under 2W/G and a Flourite/Tahitian Moon Sand Substrate?

They should. Are you dosing anything? Swords are heavy root feeders, so they will do much better if you put some root tabs in the substrate, or something similar. Also, make sure you give them at least 2-2.5" of substrate depth, so the roots will be able to grow out.

All are swords:
#1 & #3 - Ruffled sword - Echinodorus major
#2 Echinodorus 'Ozelot' - it's spotted, right?
#4 Broad-leaf sword - Echinodorus bleherae - E. cordifolius never has wavy margins.
