Hello, I'm new to planted aquariums and I need some help.

A while ago I got 2 plants from a friend of mine, they were not doing well in his tank (he have a big Amazon sword plants covering most of the light) and he gave them to me.

The first one I got a couple of weeks ago and it was in really bad condition, it was all covered with black algae, I removed the bottom leafs and it started to get some life, a new leaf started to grow.




The 2nd one I got a couple of days ago (it looks like some kind of Anubia to me).



I checked http://www.plantedtank.net/forums/myPlants.php?do=homepage&cat=0&page=0&n=All_Plants but I couldn't recognize them. Thanks in advance and sorry for my English :icon_redf .

PS. Sorry about bad image quality

Thanks guys, I removed them both from the tank to make better pictures and to tie them on a driftwood (or should I leave them in the substrate).

On the first one leafs are so small, about 1 cm.



here is the 2nd



And what type is this one? It has much bigger leafs than the other two




Thanks in advance!

Looks like Anubia barteri and they do get HUGE.
All anubias will do much better attached to driftwood or stone - try not to plant the rhizome in the substrate.

It looks like the 2nd photo is not shown, here it is again, are the 2nd and 3rd same type?




@OVT it looks like they are all named Anubia Bartery, I was more interested of the type of these 3 plants
