Hi all, I need some help identifying some plants...

I have several species that I was sold under one name which I now understand is not correct.

Plant1: was sold to me as hornwort, grows like mad always healthy. IS A ROOTED PLANT.

Plant2: wife brought home from largest pet store in the state. Cannot seem to get it to grow to correct color, should be pink. Grows and propagates med-fast, strong roots.

Plant3: foreground plant. Looks like clover. Cannot get it to grow fast or tall; although it should be able to.

Plant4: I don't know anything about this plant.

Plant5: sold as melon sword. Obviously not.

My next question will be why can't I color up these plants? I have 2.7wpg t5ho, pressurized co2, root medic complete (root tabs & liquid), weekly water changes. They all grow and propagate, strong roots, but won't color up. What little algae I have is on their leaves.

My lights are now pretty old like 2yrs.. So I can only guess that's my problem. My soil is inert white sand.
