I think its Hygrophila but im not sure, also I inject co2 but don't fertilize a lot, I fertilize a little, but not on a regular basis, though I do a lot of water changes, any help?

Awsome ok, could you guys confirm a few more for me then lol?

This im thinking is Cryptocoryne Wendtii var. "Green" (Wendtii Green)





This one I have no idea, it looks like a lot of things to me



Ludwigia Repens (Red Ludwigia) I think, you cant see but when it was healthier it has a red color as well as green.



Some kind Vesicularia Reticulata (Erect Moss)?



And then some kind of hair algae? this one I never asked for or bought it just came in, luckily shrimps love it



Would love som help on those ones

Im far from an expert on this, but i think you're right in thinking the 1st\2nd is cryptocoryne ... prob wendtii (hard to really tell with crypts!), idk on the 3rd one...maybe something nymphoides? pretty sure 4th pic is Rotala indica. i think you're right about the moss, and im not sure about the last one.

The 3rd crypt picture looks like C. pontederifolia to me.
Algae looks like clado.

I'm not great with stems so I'll leave those to the experts

It's Rotala rotundifolia, not Didiplis diandra. D. diandra has narrower leaves.
And yes, the plant in the OP is most certainly Hygrophila polysperma.

Yes by far, my only regret is not buying the entire stock of perugiae at the pet store when I saw them little did I know it would be the last time i would ever see them
