    not sure what you want to konw about them but some are not fully aquatic and most need medium to high light but they can do well in low light they just need a little more care and take a lot longer to grow

    ATM, what do you mean by not fully aquatic? (I don't know anything about plants, but was thinking about getting one of these later on)

    I believe the first one is your sword.

    fully aquatic as meaning they arent meant to be fully sumberged and eventually they will die and possibly foul up the water in your tank but besides taht i know there are swords out there that can do great in low light as my grandpa had them in more than one of his tanks and they grew all the way to the top
