What plants do I have?

I have always not really taken care of my plants to be honest, and it's nothing short of a miracle they are thriving.
Anyway, I'd like to know a bit more about them, and, since my lfs don't actually sell them by name, the names of the plants would help!

So I've attached a pic of the tank, I don't know any of the names of the plants, can anyone give me a hand?
Thanks in advance.

Sorry it's of the whole tank, I'll try to get some pics of individual plants soon! Thanks again. :D

i think the plant that is far left of the tank, where it is planted next to the side wall, is called amazon sword, or at least it looks very similar.

Thats the extent of my knowledge... i hate gardening!! :P

Some close up pictures could help

I think the one in the middle with the paddle like leaves is Crypt Parva but could be Crypt Lucens.
