Lots of tannins here. Guess that means the water is getting into the substrate

This is the little guy that has some red in it. I got it as a traveler with some grasses. It was only 1" long and now the 20 gallon has a 4-5" stem and this was coming off of it so I clipped it off and put it in here to see how it will do.

This is the little grass.

The plants have only been in here for 2 days and they are already showing new growth! Even though my wife forgot to turn the lights on yesterday. Today I moved the lights down 5". I could see the difference on how much light was making it into the tank.

Here are a couple pictures of my 20 gallon tank that I got 2 of the 3 plants from.
