Hopefully someone can identify these plants for me. It is the one right in the middle of the picture.





I think this one is Rotala wallichii, correct me if I am wrong.

Thanks

Top picture looks like Ludwigia ovalis. I agree with Ringram, bottom one looks like Mayaca fluviatilis.

Mayaca and R. Wallichii look very similar, but Mayaca tends to have a thicker stem and more densely packed leaves IME... I have never seen Mayaca get red/pink ends, so if the plant remains a solid silvery-green it may well be Mayaca...

I have 6 four foot t-8 bulbs 6500k over my tank. 110 gallons 5 feet wide x 24 high 18 wide. The bulbs are 32 or 36 watts each. I didn't think that was a lot of light....but maybe it is??

The first one looks like creeping jenny(ludwigia?)
the second one does'nt really look like R.wallichi to me. it really looks like dieing anacharis, but i doubt it.
It may just be the pics, but r.wallichi is pretty pink. And the leaves look a little bit too wide to me.
