I believe that one was Rotala rotundifolia


plant three

I was very surprised when i found the fish as i have never seen one in the wild before and didnt expect to see them in this area.

I'd guess that that is some sort of goby as well, though I don't know anything beyond that. It certainly looks physically similar to the round gobies we've got plaguing our rivers, different markings though.

Plant three almost looks like a hydrocotyle sp. Perhaps its H. ranunculoides?

First plant might be Callitriche Stagnalis? Not sure though. Second plant could be rotundifolia, however I am not that good with Rotala's.
