The star moss is probably Hyophila involuta. It's sometimes called cement moss because it can often be found growing on cement walls. It's not a true aquatic and I've seen lots of accounts of it dying in people's tanks.

I'm not sure what the "Tricho" moss is, but it looks like it might be terrestrial, as well.

However, lots of mosses we keep in our aquariums are not true aquatics, so you may be able to keep them alive. They may even flourish if you have particularly ideal water conditions. :)

The other two, though, are true aquatics. Fissidens fontanus is native to North America; you could probably find some growing not too far outside of Portland, so importing it from Singapore may have been a roundabout way of obtaining it. However, it's very pretty once it adjusts to your tank and starts growing in. I think you'll like it a lot.
