+1, I have one like that under a 24w cfl and doing well with a root tab underneath. Shrimp love to hid in it.

Make sure you put a root tab or two under the plant. They are heavy root feeders.

I usually use API root tab. Is that ok? and it is planted inside a piece of drift wood. Do you recommend that I remove it from the drift wood also?

The API tabs are fine. Swords grow huge root balls, I would take it out of the wood.
