If anyone could tell me the names of the short plant in the front (in front of the driftwood, left of the mondo grass) or the tall plants on either side of the amazon sword are, that would be awesome. When they were sold to me, the salesman at my LFS didn't know the names of them, i just thought they looked cool.
