The first two I have no idea.
The third picture is Nesaea red? Got it from the database so not sure.
Third one is some Hygrophilia??
4th one in the middle is Rotala hippuris?

Instead of making a new thread thought about updating this one.
Need help with a few of these because as usual sellers here only know the price. Sorry about the bad/large photographs.
Also, the red plants seem to be turning green. Some pre-existing leaves are turning green the new growth. Anyone knows why? They have been under 1watt/gallon light. Is that a factor?
The red/burgundy one in the middle. I suspect its not aquatic.
Red one in the middle. Looks like red baby tears? New leaves are green.
One in the middle. Definitely a stem plant.
Fine leaved one. Underside of leaves is a little reddish.
Btw regarding my previous concerns about the baby tears, boy was I wrong. I sort of abandoned the aquarium for a few months with no fertilizers whatsoever except from the soil itself and the baby tears were left floating in 50ish watt lighting with a poor reflector (white painted aquarium roof) and they absolutely took over. I used half of what grew to plant the whole aquarium. So yes if anyone is concerned you can grow baby tears in ~1wat/gal with no water fertilization and no Co2.

|keithy||you should go exchange them with some other aquatic plants.|

I do not think they will fare well outside, it is 105F+ at night, 130+ ambient in the day. Ground reaches well over 150F easily. Nothing lasts outside except Conacarpus and even then its iffy.
Thank you very much for the ID

The plant in your foreground looks rather like mondo "grass" (not a true grass) to me ... It's from Japan, and is _not_ aquatic. It's a member of the same family of plants as Liriope, and can be grown in your garden long-term, but not in your aquarium. (Some folks even use dwarf mondo as a lawn - it spreads by runners and needs mowing about once a year.)
I hope you discover that I'm wrong, though!

|LeonBright||I think that might be a Vallisneria Nana|

Any ideas on the plant in the foreground? It does have substantial roots so maybe that helps?
Also, the small plant in the foreground is baby tears, correct?
I regret not majoring in botany

The reason for the lights is because I could not find any T5HOs, nevermind the ballast, reflectors etc. Plus I like the shimmer
I am not interested in corals and saltwater at all, especially after I heard a friend of mine saying he payed ~280$ for a bulb and upwards of 600$ a month just for maintenance

|ThatGuyWithTheFish||It's also sold as Peacock Fern at Petco, not aquatic.|

That's a lot of light over that tank, lol. You could probably grow corals too.
The pink plant is Alternanthera reineckii. Not sure about the other, my Sagittarias have broader leaves. Hopefully that one is aquatic.

Need help with plant id, as usual LFS have no idea what they are just the prices
Red one in the middle. Some sort of Ludwigia?
One in the foreground, some Sagittaria?
Finally found some baby tears, not sure if dwarf. They appear to have been wrapped in cotton for quite some while and the lower stems/roots appear to be somewhat rotten/brown. Will they bounce back? Only had a small amount and would really love to grow them since I suspect I'll never find them again. Lighting is 2x150W Osram HQI-TS 5600K metal halides over a 50 gallon tank. Dirt substrate with pool filter sand on top. No Co2 what so ever but going pressurized in a few days just for the baby tears if needed.
Another question, I suspect that I bought a java fern but the leaves seem to be thin with a loong stem, one of the leaves has a trident effect. Plant has rhizome. Is it java fern? Pics coming soon.
Thank you everyone
