Wow, that is a lot. None of them were labeled? I'll do it this time, but... Here goes:

#1 Alternanthera reineckii - I'm not sure what variety, but the species is clear
http://www.aquaticplantcentral.com/....php?id=208&category=genus&spec=Alternanthera

#2 Limnophila aromatica - an easy way to differentiate this one from Pogostemon stellatus is that the latter has purple nodes
http://www.aquaticplantcentral.com/...ails.php?id=98&category=genus&spec=Limnophila

#3 Hygrophila polysperma 'Sunset' (aka 'Rosanervig')
http://www.aquaticplantcentral.com/...ails.php?id=35&category=genus&spec=Hygrophila

#4 Echinodorus tenellus
http://www.aquaticplantcentral.com/...ls.php?id=216&category=genus&spec=Echinodorus

#5 Echinodorus sp. 'Vesuvius'

#6 Cabomba furcata - three leaves per node, right?
http://www.aquaticplantcentral.com/...etails.php?id=107&category=genus&spec=Cabomba

#7 Syngonanthus sp. 'Belem' - this one has been called a Tonina for a long time but it isn't. Please see the entry for more
http://www.aquaticplantcentral.com/...s.php?id=128&category=genus&spec=Syngonanthus

#8 Riccia fluitans
http://www.aquaticplantcentral.com/forumapc/plantfinder/details.php?id=99&category=genus&spec=Riccia

#9 Hygrophila corymbosa? - I'm not positive on this one. Another photo? It may be the 'Kompact'.

#10 Either Rotala wallichii or R. sp. 'Vietnam' - too soon to tell I think

#11 Ludwigia arcuata
http://www.aquaticplantcentral.com/...etails.php?id=91&category=genus&spec=Ludwigia

#12 Blyxa japonica
http://www.aquaticplantcentral.com/forumapc/plantfinder/details.php?id=123&category=genus&spec=Blyxa

#13 Limnophila sp. - It's hard to tell from that photo but that's what looks like. I'm not sure which one. Several of the feathery ones are very difficult to tell apart. Flowers are needed to really be sure, but in a while we may have a better idea of what species it is.

#14 Heteranthera zosterifolia - It doesn't look happy but should be fine.
http://www.aquaticplantcentral.com/...ls.php?id=67&category=genus&spec=Heteranthera

#15 Limnobium laevigatum - aka frogbit
http://www.aquaticplantcentral.com/...tails.php?id=61&category=genus&spec=Limnobium

#16 Monosolenium tenerum
http://www.aquaticplantcentral.com/...s.php?id=153&category=genus&spec=Monosolenium

#17 Fissidens fontanus - probably F. fontanus

#18 Taxiphyllum barbeiri - Java moss
http://www.aquaticplantcentral.com/...ls.php?id=101&category=genus&spec=Taxiphyllum

#19 - I'm not sure based on that photo

Hmm.. #9 is definitely not Hygrophila sp. 'Porto Velho' (= 'Roraima'). I think Avalon may be correct that it's the 'low grow' (probably the Staurogyne that Tropica sells).

I still think #16 is Monosolenium tenerum.

#16 misses the light green stripe in the middle that is typical for Monosolenium tenerum, so my guess: Lomariopsis lineata (aka Süßwassertang) without the light green stripe.
