I think you were right about the one on the left corner. But not the middle and the right one.

I have taken a bigger picture of each of them, are you able to name them all?


Deeply appreciate for taking the consideration to read my post :)

They look like Rotala of sorts. Try to match them up in the 'Plants' link above. Here's another link too. http://www.tropica.com/en/plants/plant-list-a-z.aspx
before i introduce them into my tank, i check the bottom of these 3 plants and seems that only 1 of them has root, the other two is rootless(what i believe is called stem plant)

so for stem plant, do i just cut away the not very nice looking part and insert them into the gravel?

Yes, that should be fine.

Yes.

Try to cut just under the leaf node (a spot on the stem where leaves come from),
strip leaves from 2 - 4 leaf nodes above the cut,
make a hole in the gravel with your finger or stick,
put a stem in the hole,
cover the hole with gravel,
pull the stem up just a tiny bit,
press the gravel around the stem with your fingers to make it compact a bit

Take a break, come back and plant another stem :)

i really need your help thanks
Hi kennchong94,

The plant in the back left looks more like Ceratopteris thalictroides. If all the stems originate from a crown at the substrate level it is watersprite.

The middle rear looks like Mayaca fluviatilis.

The rear right looks like Ludwigia repens.

Sorry, I can't make out the foreground plants.

Definitely right about Ceratopteris thalictroides, i sincerely hope that these 3 plants will survive as my only substrate is normal gravel. With super k every morning and probably some nitrate from the fishes
