Thanks

Thanks for all your help guys. I think the plant in the upper right corner is watersprite. I have Wisteria and this plant definately has a more fern like apperance. Here is a closer pic of the bottom plant. Thanks again.

I would say the lower left is Ludwigia, and the upper right is Water Sprite. I have both in my tank.

My first thought was hygro for the bottom left, but I changed it to ludwiga.. looks a lot like hygro polysperma (same species as rosanervig)..

Well, if it's Ludwigia I hope it makes it in my tank. My last try at Ludwigia repens didn't go so well. All of it died within a week. Made a mess on the way out as well! Keep you posted. Thanks again.

i am 99.9% positive that it is the hygro rosenervig. they have it at the superpet near me (i am assuming this is where u bought it becasue they are having a sale on there poted plants and they actually have the little identification tag with it and that is what it is labelled as. it is identicle to the plant that i picked up today and it was labelled as the rosenervig.

The lower right could very well be hygro rosanervig, I gave him some which gave him the same "weed effect" it has in my tank. he was asking about lower left and upper right.

The lower left is far to short a leaf for rosanervig. but the species looks the same.

I agree, the leafs are too short to be rosanervig. I'm still leaning towards Ludwigia.

Here is one more shot of this plant. This is a clearer close up shot. I believe it is Ludwigia. I has very small leaves which look to scale in my small tank. Hope it stays this compact. Thanks again for all the help

This shot makes it look like it might be Rotala Rotundifolia to me.
