    Thanks a lot guys! Number 5 is a difficult one. It kind of looks like both the suggestions. Could it be a Rotala?

    Awesome, thanks Bazil. I suspect the beautiful red colour will fade as it did with my aromatica

    2 is a rotala - suspecting it's colorata or Rotundifolia. But you will have to wait to see what underwater leaves it puts out.
