The smaller plant across the substrate in my 90g is Echinodorus tenellus. In the 115g it is E. quadricostatus, very similar but slightly wider and longer leaves; often sold as E. tenellus [that's how I came up with it].
I have a Sagitarria in the 90g, the taller plant on the far left and in a couple of spots mid-tank, it is identical to the E. tenellus but twice the height. Not sure of the exact species, it was sold as S. subulata; but Hiscock reports that there are several varieties of this species.
Java Moss I have in all three tanks, on some of the bogwood. It arrived on the wood. Some grows incredibly fast, other bits slowly. Of course, the slower may be a different plant.
I'm not familiar with the Bacopa species, which is to say never kept it. Anubias barteri I probably have, I bought it labeled as A. nana which Hiscock says is a variation of A. barteri. It is currently in my spare 33g, but I'm attaching a photo of the 33g in its former life when it was full of this plant. I had over three feet of rhizome from one little plant I bought in 1998 or maybe 1999, and I cut it apart to fill the 33g in 2008. A true shade plant, it needs floating plant cover or it does not do well. And brush algae finds this plant first, perhaps because the leaves are so tough.
