Can you identify these three plants for me?

I have three plants that im not sure what they are, and id like to see if anyone can identify them!
The first one came from a bulb, though its grown two smaller plants from the top of the bulb, and ive replanted them. Dont know if theyll survive, though.plant from red bulb 1.jpg

The second was sold to me as a 'live plant that grows large'. I snagged one, and its bulb had three other plants attached, so ive seperated them, and replanted them. It does grow fast, though im concerned about its leaves. Some of them seem to be turning reddish? just a few though. Or it may be that the leaves are getting thinner, IE a sign of being unhealthy? The leaves are intact and this is an all over the leaf thing, not just spots. It actually looks quite nice, the viens of the leave still stay bright green. You may not be able to tell from the pictures, but, maybe you can tell a species.plant from PPP 1.jpgplant from PPP 2.jpgplant from PPP 3.jpg

The third came as a surprise from another LPS, and it was just a root with a leaf sticking out. Slowly other plants grew from it, and today i seperated a few, and replanted. They definitely have grown since i got them!

The second one seems to be an aponogeton... The last COULD be a swordplant of som sort.

I can't tell about the first photo, not sure which plant we are considering. I agree with redchigh that the second set of photos is likely an Aponogeton. And the third is probably Echinodorus osiris or one of the similar variants like the Red Melon Sword. The names shaded so check the photos inn the profiles, and the info in the text.
