Help Newbie ID

Hello all, newbie here looking for a little help. Have a 55 gallon setup and looking to ID a few plants, my eyes are killing me from searching through online pics, so many plants look so much alike. This site has been so much help. Thanks for any and all help. Blaine.

The only think that I can ID for certain is the Lucky Bamboo (back left). It likes having it's feet wet, but not the entire plant. While some have reported having it live a very long time completely submerged, this is the exception and not the rule.

The plant looks like some sort of Sword, no idea if it's actually aquatic or not.

I'd need to a closer pic of the other two to take a guess.

Thanks for the reply. These are the best close-ups I could get without getting the camera wet. Also, if this helps, These plants were purchased at PetCo, they have three tanks set up full of live plants.

I agree, the second pic is Lilaeopsis brasiliensis.

The third looks like the emersed form of Bacopa monnieri or even Altenanthera philoxeroides.

The first is a sword. Maybe Echinodorus cordifolius.
