Help ID these plants.


A couple weeks ago we were at the Tampa FL aquarium & I saw this big Discus tank:



Can anyone identify the tall plants in the center? They have long stems with a spoon shaped leaf at the top.

And these too:


Thanks

Tall ones in the center look to be some kind of sword...
The second one I don't have any real guess but maybe hygrophila polysperma?

The tall plant in the center with fairly long stems and leaves pointed on either end? Look like some sort of Anubias to me, veining of leaves isn't that of swords anyway.

The other looks like Hydrophilia stricta to me.
