Red face Oops! Help with Plant IDs

Well, my newness is showing - I tried to order in some plants for my aquarium - and, well, didn't get what I was expecting

I tried to order Pennywort - I didn't specify Brazilian, so I got a pond plant.
and I tried Anubias nana petite - and I think I got a Anubias Nana, and who knows what else :/

so IDs would be helpful in finding the Pennywort a new home, and the other two should be workable, I think :P, but I'd still like to know what I'm working with.

thanks so much guys!

Brittany

ps. excuse the bad photos, cameras aren't my strong suit.

#1 might be Ranunculus sceleratus. I collected this plant once in Kansas. It makes a nice pond plant, but i'm not quite sure how it would do in an aquarium.
#2 looks like Anubias coffeefolia.
#3 Anubias afzelii? Maybe?

Oops i think you might be right about #1... didn't see that it was growing by runners.
