I'm planning on setting-up a 55g, with my objective of breeding my Wild Caught Altum Angels...what Sword plant(s) would be good for the female to lay her eggs on?

Question Amazon, Red Rubin, Oriental...are they any good?

55g is not IMO large enough for Altums. Altums are the giant of the Angel world. They also need immaculate water with black water properties.

A 55g would be fine for a proven pair but not to try and have a group in.
I know this isn't waht you are asking but it still needed to be said.

As far as the sword plants go, any sword plant will do. It is the broad leaves with a smooth surface that they are attracted to.

My personal fave is the red hybrids. Leaves come in red then turn green when mature. Makes for a less monotone tank.
