Need plant Id please...
 
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 :(

Thank you for the reply. ; )

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.:hmm:

Anyone got an idea as to what the third one is?

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.

Oh okay thank you very much for clearing that up for me.
