They are green and tall. And if not planted they float.

Honestly though no idea, but I'll be sure to find out as I like the look of them!

Photo 1 is probably Alternanthera reineckii. Click the shaded name for our profile with photos; as noted therein, there are 3 colour forms.

Photo 2 is likely a Bacopa species. We don't have any of these in our profiles yet.

I have a bacopa compacta currently and it does look very similar structurally now that you've said it Byron.

Safe to plant in bunches like it came? Or better off spreading it out a bit when pushing it in the substrate?

It is better to remove the band and plant the stems individually. Just an inch or two apart. This allows for light to reach the lower leaves and they are less likely to die off. Some stem plants can be bunched in perhaps 3 or 4 stems and it is a better effect, but I wouldn't with these.

First one looks more like Limnophila aromatica to me.
