Got this little plant some days back from an other aquarist, I was told it was some sort of Lagenandra but he didn´t know more about it than that.

Does anyone recognize it and can inform me about what specimen it is and perhaps can tell me more about its demands?

It looks like L. meeboldii 'pink'. See here (not the tall plant):

And here:

It takes a while to adjust. Needs lots of room! It's like most Cryptocoryne in terms of care.
Need a lot of room... How large does it grow (height/width)?

Like Cryptos in term of care... Does this spieces suffer for cryptocoynedisease aswell?

It should honestly be noted that of the few other people I know growing this plant, no one gets it remotely close to the size that Bryce does - I think he is feeding that thing Wheaties or something.

It's the big red plant in the left half of the tank:



Honestly, I don't know why that particular plant does so well in this setting. Maybe it's the comination of light, low KH, and mature substrate.
