Some you will have to wait for more growth for anyone to ID, but I do believe I have some idea of what you have with #3 and 4:

#3 appears to be an Anubia, possibly 'congensis' species.
#4...

I lost a BN ("Treebeard", you are sorely missed...:frown:) and it was due to not having enough veggie matter in the tank. Too much protein. Feed algae tabs regularly and a nice veggie every 7-10...

Jumpers? Yes!

I have a blue or green panchax (found it at my LFS among golden wonder killis) that does the same thing. I have a lid, but one day this summer, I was standing by my tank, going over a list of things...

My L128 goes nuts over shelled peas and broccoli.

I have either a rainbow or greenside darter I picked up from an LFS (PetSmiths, no longer open) and it does VERY well in my 44 gallon corner tank (covered). It's got a power head with a fair amount...

These are about the smallest algae eating plecos you can find. Adults are known to be smaller than 3 inches (or 7.6 cms for you metric fans). Very attractive, too.

If you were to do those, I would recommend either blue neon dwarf rainbows (m. praecox) or madagascar rainbows (b. gayii, I believe). Smaller, colorful and will not outgrow your tank. Though I love...

Sometimes called the Gold Marble Bristlenose, the Ancistrus claro stays rather small at around 3 inches or so...decent algae demolitionist, too.

If I don't find the dead fish within the first 24 hours of it dying, my loaches have usually got it picked clean pretty soon after that. I have 2 skunks, 2 zebras and a kobotai in my 44g. My skunks...

I would hold off at least two months to add a farlowella. It needs to be well established with no swings--you'll lose them if there are any.

Also, when acclimating, I took it slow--used a bucket...
