Plants three and four.

One has red leaves, the other has green.

Sorry the pictures aren't that good. Fighting green water.

Well, plant one kinda looks like maybe this (I have one of these and so far it just looks like the bottom portion of the picture, with the rounder leaves).

I have no idea about plant two (all those grassy-type plants look alike to me ).

Plants three and four look like this and this (esp. read the description about white veins on the red variety).

You might want to take a browse through here and see if you can spot them. Be sure to let us know if you find out.

I think the 3rd or 4th plant, (red one) is red ludwigia(sp?)
and the green one looks like sunset hydro except it isn't recieving enough light to become that pink color

Yeah, the first one looks like Rotalla. The last one is Red Ludwigia. The second one is not really clear. It looks like the green acorus which is a bog plants and will die eventually. Where did you get the second one?

Thanks for the replies.

I found these plants anlong with pennywort growing wild in a small lake in Southern Georgia. The grass looking plant has grown two inches this week. All the plants were growing submerged.

I know Plants three and four are not red ludwiga and sunset Hygro. I have both of those plants in the in the tank and these two look nothing like them.

The first one looks like a bacopa to me.
The second one could be an acorus or an emergent hairgrass hard to tell.
I have no idea which plant you want us to look at in the third picture.

Aquascape? I'm a crypt farmer.

It's a fine line between fishing and standing on the shore looking like an idiot.

That IS an aquascape, it's titled "The Vacant Lot".

The first most likely is bacopa and not rotalla
