Question Amania gracilis or something else? PLANT ID

Hey guys. I recently bought this plant, but I forgot the name of it. I think it is Amania gracilis but then I saw other plants like Ludwigia Arculata and Nesaea crassicaulis and I am not sure anymore.

The top is redder than what my camera could capture...

And here is an extra one, I know it is a Ludwigia, but I dont know what species it is.

I posted this in other forums and got no answers, so I thought it would be a good idea to come with the professionals.

Believe I've seen this post elsewhere.

Nesaea has been renamed to Ammannia.
As to your actual plant in the first pics it might be A.gracilis but pics are poor to distinguish colors.

The other looks like L.Repens broadleaf?

Not trying to be mean in any way but?
Many will stay clear of identification without good pics.
Or the colors don't look right and a multi-person debate starts.
If you had not mentioned posting elsewhere I too would have avoided this.
Having already tried at another source I felt it deserved attention none the less.

Thanks for the responses. Yeah, the pictures are not the best looking but I thought they were decent enough to make an ID, apparently my standards are too low lol. I will take that in consideration for my next posts. I did not know of the existence of Ludwigia Repens broadleaf, and I thought it wasnt Ludwigia Repens because I have Ludwigia Repens on another tank and it did not look like that, so I guess I have both leaf varieties. The fact that it was also super green made me think it wasnt Repens, but now that I started a new colony of it in a dirted tub with direct sunlight and the leafs have turned reddish, so yeah, I agree on the repens part and I also think my main tank must suck when it comes to nutrients or light lol. As far as the ammania goes, I was kind of sure it was Ammania, but I just wanted a second opinion.
