The wide leaf one is a Ludwigia species, Repens or Brevepes, and the long narrow leaf is a terrestrial grass and is not aquatic, IMHO anyway. Could be a val but I doubt it.

I think ur right on both as i have just done a google search and could not find the name given to me at petco. I guess the terestrial plant can go in with my tegu although he did a number on the ones i put in there last time
oh and it is Ludwigia repens Thank u f4a

YW, The grass could be grown emersed if you are so inclined to try to set up for it. I wish I had the room to do a combined emersed tank but it is beyond my resources right now.
