The first one looks like chickweed, which is strictly terrestrial (see bottom of this page:
http://users.ev1.net/~spituch/unidentified/unidentified.html).

The second one is a sedge, probably related to hair grass. I have had some luck keeping this domestic plant in an aquarium for about a month but it ultimately weakened. However, you may have better luck, as my tank wa snot in the best of shape at the time.

I was hoping that the 4th plant was a zosterella or a narrow leaf potamogeton sp. but it just looks too grasslike. If it was totally submerged or floating or the surface of the water, it would stand a chance of being aquatic, but if it was sticking out of the water, then its probably a terrestrial grass.

Number 4, right after the sedge, is plantain (Plantago major) It is not likely to survive for long underwater.
