Identification

Hey guys, I was just wondering if anyone could help me with identifying some plants in my tank. I got them with the tank and have been trying to find out what they are...alas I am useless There are 3 different kinds.

P.S I added the java Fern (back left and right corner) today so atleast I know that one :P

Any help would be much appreciated!

Once the Val gets settled and growing it will send out runners with new plants on it. Over time you will get a nice little stand of it.

Mayaca fluviatilis is what the first picture looks like. I have some in my tank and it grows fast and is very easy to grow. It also could be Egeria densa?

The other plant looks like Bacopa monnieri or perhaps lindernia rotundifolia.

I agree with the corkscrew vals ID.
