I think that the first one has too thin of a leaf to be a crypt. It looks more like a swordplant to me. I would wait and see if it offshoots or has runners... The second one does look kinda like a blyxa variety. Oh btw, the little pot thing looks cool.

I agree that the first one looks more like an Echinodorus species. Which one is hard to say from the small picture. The second is likely Blyxa japonica.

echinodorus species are mostly sword plants right?

and i read that in general they need a good substrate... but do they neeed Co2 too? my tank doesnt have CO2 injection that make explain the poor health...
