That first one looks like Staurogyne sp. 'Bihar', not the 'brown'.

Hmmm, I dont think it is aromatica.I have some aromatica in that tank and it has 5+ stems coming from each node, and it is a yellow color, while this plant is taking on pink hues.

I was thinking it might be a pogostemon maybe yatabeanus ???

Usually 3 when fully adapted to submerged growth but you are most likely correct.
