You mean the grassy plant?

If so, it's dwarf hairgrass

Sorry. I'm talking about the tiny plant in the center of the pictures. Not the DHG or HC. You can see the leaves are larger than the HC.

Oh I see.

Hmmm...it's hard to tell from above, I'm guessing it's glossostigma

The leaves are more sharp than the HC. It's probably hard to tell right now. I'll take another picture in a couple weeks.

It could be Elatine hydropiper. Def. not glosso.

No, that's about the right size for Elatine hydropiper.

I'll take a picture when I get home in a couple hours. As of now, it has four leaves and is growing vertically.

Looks mysteriously like Sphaerocaryum malaccense... but still too hard to tell at this point.

Almost all stem plants look like that when it's that small and emersed. I'd let it grow out for a few days or a week or two and it'll be a lot easier to ID
