Pond Plants

So all of the patients and hard work has finally paid off. After using chlorine and a week of very limited lighting the pond plants have established themselves quite nicely. I still got some back ground algae growing but the snails are taking care of that now for me. The tank pictured is a 40g bow front tank

What is the bushy plant in the background? That's pretty cool looking! Nice tank setup too, I like the rock ledge in the back.

I have no idea what any of those plants are, they all came out of a drainage ditch near my house. Would like some help in identifying them

That is a nice setup! I wonder what the bushy plant is also, it looks really good in this tank.

Just a guess but it may be Micranthemum umbrosum? I found some in a drainage ditch when I lived in Fl. Looks similar but not sure. Whatever it is I like it.

I don't have any CO2 in the tank now, mostly feeding the plants with excess fishfood, there is a Blue Beta that owns the turf in there. I will cut back the plant on the right and see if I can get it started again in a smaller tank from the clippings
