sunset hygro you should see white veins, this one don't have it. Can't be Alternanthera reineckii has thick stems and big leaf this one don't have it. Its a rotala species for sure.

both are rotala

First one might be macrandra "thin leaf" like yoink said-- also known as rotala "magenta" which means macrandra thin leaf.

2nd is definite rotundifolia or indica.

All really common rotalas anyway
