low-light planted tank - id/help please

I helped a friend today redo her 20g aquarium to a Walstad-style tank. We reused many of her existing plants, and picked up a few more at a lfs (water sprite, the val and crypts in the right corner, and some dwarf sag in the front left corner.) Two plants I'm uncertain of... the one in front of the water sprite on the left, and one that's maybe hard to see in the back middle (see third pic taken from the side). Can anyone ID these two?







Curious about what is this plant in front of the water sprite?



The other plant we're hoping to ID is to the right of the dw, in front of the water sprite (behind the crypts)

edit: relocated the plants today, here's a better pic of the second plant:

Thanks, tomfromstlouis... I'm not sure, the veins seem more pronounced on ours, and I didn't notice the stems being segmented but maybe because it's a tip.

We added a few more plants today, and replanted the two mystery plants... basically swapping their positions and breaking them up into single stems.

Maybe this new picture might help ID the two plants:




Here's the fts with new plants added today, a c. wendtii, dwarf lily, a nymphoides sp. Tawain, and a type of rotala (maybe r. indica) that may or may not work out.




A closer pic of the right side.

looks like a hygrophila corymbosa...

My day is better whenever I buy a new plant.
