Please indentify plants

I got these plants from a friend when I set up the tank. I do not know what they are. I want to know so I can research how to care for them better.

well the image with the albino cory in it: the plant on the left is not a true aqatic its a cordaline and wont last long in water stick that one in a pot they make good houseplants the plant on the right of the cory is a cryptone species which are one of my favorite plants they do well as long as they have a good substrate as there fairly greedy root tabs help, the plant on the far right of the neon looks like a terestrial plant too but could be one of the larger crypt species i cant tell ,the grassy stuff looks like dwarf sag but from the looks of it its establised so you already know what it is.
any help?

Thanks! I did not know they sold terrestrial plants as aquatic, that is so strange! Its okay though, because I like houseplants too . The second one that you said was aquatic, I thought may be terrestrial when I purchased it, but it has been doing well underwater, sprouting new leaves, etc. I will keep an extra eye on it though. Thanks so much!

that still looks to me like a possible crypt ,crypts are in the some familes as a number of houseplants(arum family)sometimes sold as aqatics so it can be difficult to asertain if its a true aqatic or not as they share much of the same form the the smaller crypt if probably Cryptocoryne wendtii as this is the most common and easy to care for crypt these are the same same species in one of my tanks
