Both appear to me to be Rotala rotundifolia 'Green', previously known as Rotala sp. 'Green'.

Those are wonderful tanks BTW. Where is that photo from? I would love to see a full tank shot of them. They both look familiar but I can't seem to place where :( I really like that rock work in the first one and the glosso on the rocks in the second one.

I found this photos one day somewhere on the net. I think they belong to Amano. I hardly recognize this plants. I also thought they are Rotalas (Rotala rotundifolia "Green") but the leaves are much more longer for them?

The maximum leaf size on Rotala rotundifolia 'Green' is about 3/4 that of regular Rotala rotundifolia. Coupled with the fact that you are looking at two fairly large tanks, this narrow-leaf plant may appear to be smaller than usual? Perhaps you can better gauge its size and cascading habit from the following photo:

AFAIK, there are four online locations where pictures of Amano's works are exhibited:

http://www.akva.sk/phpBB2/fotenie.php
http://visual35.tripod.com/amano.html
http://www.aqua-shopping.com/cnt/gallery/index.htm

The last link is attitudinal. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. But it contains some of Amano's latest aquascapes.
