    1. some sort of alternanthera?
    2. alternanthera reineckii
    3. ludwigia maybe brevipes
    4. hygrophila difformis
    5. ludwigia maybe arcuata
    6. also ludwigia
    7. also ludwigia
    8. looks like rotala rotundifolia

    i would need to see flowers on the ludwigias for more accurate identification

    The pink one looks like the ones we had in our garden - what @wearsbunnyslippers said - I believe Alternanthera Partytime or Joseph's Coat

    The last one on the right looks like some sort of bacopa... Those stems look right for bacopa so not sure why it's not mentioned... My belief is that it's bacopa caroliniana (I've had those stems before, both emersed and submersed)

    rotundifolia means large round leaves, the pink stem is a dead give away for rotalas..

    Doesn't make any sense to me - googled it and it came up as a red plant with completely different leaves, unless it's grow emersed and looks that way.

    So could it be a rotala indica then?
