the first one looks like a small amazon sword.
second looks like some chain sword.
last one looks like some larger leafed crypt and in the bottom left maybe dwarf sagittaria
not 100% sure though, hopes this helps1

the amazon sword and crypt love nutrient rich substrate, dwarf sage is pretty much impossible to kill, and the chain sword is pretty hardy as well if i am not mistaken. all are low/med to med/high lighting

Well what is your current lighting set up?
Type of light (t12, t8, t5ho, compact fluorescent, incandescent, LED, or metal halide)
How many watts it has?
What the color spectrum is (6500k to 10 000k is what the should have to grow plants)
