Default Name these plants!

Can any name the plant species in this picture? I really like the foreground plant, and I'm just curious about the others.

Looks like Glossostigma for the foreground, Blyxa japonica for the mid, and giant hairgrass for the back. I could be wrong. The plant finder on here will help. Or Google images.

I feel like it's much bigger than glossostigma. Maybe I'm wrong...

I think those a Black Neons which gives you a good size scale of the tank. Small. I still think its healthy Glosso after blowing it up with the Control and Plus buttons at the same time.

I actually think those are Emperor Tetras and not Black Neons, body shape is a little different and there is no characteristic reflective silver line on the fish pictured.

Yes, I debated that too after I posted, they could be Emperors. Either way, the tank is probably a 60p or less and im pretty sure thats glosso. Or some REALLY nutrient deprived nana petite(but I seriously doubt it).
