Hello M...

The plants look to me like a couple of varieties of Hygrophila. The one on the left "corymbosa" and the other a type of "dwarf hygro".

They look like they're stem plants that have been grown emersed. That would make IDing them difficult until they transition into submerged growth.

The left looks a lot like reineckii and/or corymbosa, can't quite decide. The other pic, for me, is too hard to tell what I'm looking at, sorry.

Funny you should say that because when i search reineckii both of the plants come up however they are both different looking and leaves are different shapes hence my confusion about what is what. I also have green corymbosa in the tank and they just dont look like they could be one and the same. I think aqua_chem is on the money ill probably have to wait for the plants color to change then try and id them.

Can you get us a better pic of them? I'm finding pictures of emersed alternanthera that looks like either picture.

Part of me wants to think that they're BOTH alternanthera, but grown in different conditions. We'll have to wait and see though.
