It looks like japanesse rush. I think it is a Eleocharis sp.

I think that is a ludwigia sp.

On the money, definitely Echino cordifolius. These get large over time.

Sagittaria form. I have seen this plant a lot in pond stores.

I think that one is bacopa - bacopa caroliniana (AKA giant bacopa)

DLeDeaux Most of the stuff I found was growing in very shallow 6" water. Some were completely submerged others were emersed. I had the best luck where water movement was minimal. I looked for areas that were well lit with lots of sunlight.

One of the next things I'd like to do is maybe some skin diving and see if there are any interesting specimins that grow further out in deeper water.

slyargent Hahahah...I was thiking of doing the same thing! I'm really short on cash and can't afford to fill in my 75 gallon!

The last pic looks like a gymnocoronis...

The first one is some sort of eleocharis, I don't know what specific species though.

GulfCoastAquarian Impressive findings! You're making me want to go out wading in some of our local ponds and streams. What do you look for as far as location? Shallow, wooded areas?

DLeDeaux My wife and I went out and gathered a few plants for my new aquarium from local ponds and lakes this weekend. I know what a couple are but need some help on the others, plus some confirmation on what the others are. Please forgive the poor shots, I have yet to learn many tips on "aquatography" and for some reason my camera kept focusing on the glass. Probably the algae.

Some form of Eleocharis hairgrass. Not so sure I like this one too much.

Another shot from above.
