1st plant i think is Najas graminea, a floating plant. 2nd one.. no idea except the leaves look like Marsilea hirsuta.

It is definitely not marsilea hirsuta as its a rosette type plant. Thanks for the 1st id.

I also think plant #1 is a Najas species. Just a guess---plant #2 may be genus Eichornia.

Read through this link about Eichornia species. http://www.thekrib.com/Plants/Plants/Eichhornia.html

It may just take some time growing it out and seeing how it matures before a positive ID can be made. Either way, it's a neat looking plant, and well worth keeping....until it grows into a giant squid and eats your aquarium. ;)

I do not think that it is a Eichornia species. Not sure if I can do this, borrowed this picture from Mimbon on their exploration of Sulawesi. The circled plant growing amonst the Eriocaulon is the plant that I have.

Anyone? Able to place within a family, will be of great help.
