Guess the Mystery Plants!

Hello! I am fairly new to planted tanks (despite having had a sparse one for 5 years) and would like to identify what I currently have in my tank. The only one I know for sure is the Hygrophila difformis (water wisteria) - thanks to this site's plant profiles. If anyone can help me ID the others, that would be awesome!
