    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?

    Welcome to fishlore

    Definitely is a Micro Chain Sword aka Lilaeopsis brasiliensis.

    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?

    You may need to go into CO2. 4 T5s on a 55 is pretty high lighting. This chart (Hoppy's Lighting Chart) will give you a sense on the intensity of your lighting.
