Most plants will develop some dieback when first planted, new shoots should replace the brown leaves, make sure any decaying leaves are removed from the tank.

its normal for amazon swords to die back a bit when first introduced to the tank but they will come on again.

I always found swords dont need anything special, they are a hardy plant that do well under most lights. As for length of time with the lights on aim for between 8-10 hours a day.

Are you using CO2/plant fertilisers?

Oh yes :-): doesn't matter about the size of the tank.
If you have plants you need to feed them, otherwise with light the only thing you'll be growing is algae.
