My friend got these for her 40 gallon tank and I think I know what they are but would like to make sure I am right. LOL
The first one I think is Java Fern I told her to take it out of the gravel and attach it to some driftwood or a rock and she said she would:

Second I think may be A. Ulvaceus:

Third I think may be a V. americana but I am only about 50% sure on it:

The top one definitely looks like Java fern, good call. Maybe even a wide leave variety from what I can tell. No experience with the other two, sorry :(

I agree with you Amanda. The Aponogeton might be A. rigidifolius which to me looks very similar to A. ulvaceous. This is just off the top of my head, late on a Friday evening.

I had meant previously that I agree with you, it may be Vallisneria americana, the "corkscrew" variety; but in checking our profile now (I knew the corkscrew was included) I see it might more likely be V. spiralis. They are basically identical and the flower would have to be seen, as mentioned in the profile.
