It is an Anubias, not sure if it is 'nana' or not.

The grassy looking ones, may be valisneria of some kind, or possibly one of the narrow leaf sword plants.. it's bit hard for me to see details. The broader leaved ones, I think, are also some kind of Anubias. There are several types, and telling them apart is not always easy. Slow growers, and yes, should be tied to rock or wood. String will rot eventually, best to use poly thread or fish line.

The one in the middle of the last pic looks like it might be a crypt of some kind.

(first post photos) It looks like anubias nana petite variegated/marbles ..or you have some seriously nutrient deficient leaves-the light ones-anubias rhizomes should not be so yellow looking... but if it is marble/variegated you're very lucky! For that many leaves you'd probably pay over $150 from a seller. Can you put it by a penny or other small object to use for measurement comparison, it may also be narrow leaf or micro depending on leaf overall size.
Anubias does best tied to something (wood, rock, lead-less plat weight) and placed in the tank. Do not bury the rhizome (horizontal part that leaves and roots grow from) in the substrate, it will rot and die. Keep the rhizome above the substrate and ti will do fine (you can bury the roots if long enough and let the rhizome float just above the gravel). Its a slow growing, undemanding plant that can live in petty much any tank condition (low tech-light to high tech-light). Because its a slow grower its leaves can be more prone to getting algae on them but its very tolerant plant to bleach or peroxide dips used to kill/remove algae.

Due to photobuckets new bs cost for use of images on forums I have deleted all photobucket accounts. I apologize if you enjoyed or found my photos helpful.
