I am thinking picture #1 could be an Alternanthera species. Can't tell which from #1, but your second picture of that plant looks a lot like Alternanthera sessilis because of the dark beet red colors. A. sessilis is only a terrarium plant.

Thanks for confirmation. I am now pretty sure that it is A. sessilis. It hasn't rotten yet, but no growth either.

When I tried A. sessilis, it slowly lost its leaves underwater, but the stem still grew very slowly and the new leaves were so small they could hardly be seen. When the stem finally pierced the surface of the water, it started growing normal leaves.
