Question what are these?

I have admired so many of your tanks here. SUCH an inspiration of what I can only hope to have my tank attain to. While trying to look through every nook and kranny of this website I found a journal of Unirdna and was amazed.... I am wondering WHAT ARE THESE 2 PLANTS. Is the crypt a wendtii?? Is that baby tears???? Here is the link to the page here. The "bush" i am refuring to is in the front right side of the tank. and the crypt is on the left middle...

Take a look at Uni's journal. That bush in the front right is baby tears (Hemianthus micranthemoides) and that plant in the middle left isn't a Crypt. species. It's actually Aponogeton crispus.

that should be Cyperus helferi

Truvu 100g Flourite, wet/dry, AHSupply 302w PC, PinPoint controller
10gallon15w T6+15w T8
55gallon40w T6 ODNO4x, no CO2. Discus grow out.
10gallon Tonina tank, 2x15w T6 ODNO 4x
I will do aquascapes after I collect all the plant species and grow them to perfection.
