Plant ID needed please?

What is the low grass in the back and mid of these two photo's? E. Tenellus?







and would it happen to be any similar to the small grass like plant in the right side tank in this photo?

IMO, Helanthium tenellum (ex. E. tenellus) in the first 2 pics because it's turning reddish. The 3rd might have Utricularia graminifolia.

Welcome!
Be sure to get that H. tenellum that stays small and turns red... There seems to be bigger plants going around with that name (some even 10'' tall with wider & pure green leaves).
