Based on 1st pic..

Far right one seems to be a type of anubias

The one on the far left, i cant remember the name of but grows like crazy once it settles in a dirted tank, and grows quite a thick stem...

I used to have it in one of my tanks till i couldnt stand trimming it every week...

So the one on the far left I identified as Watersprite which is also known as Indian fern. Interesting plant which can also grow very well as a floating plant and even have its roots attach to porius objects

The last picture does look like water sprite or wisteria, agreed the broadleaf plant is an Anubis of some sort, and the other one looks like ludwigia

Ok so now I have a Definite I.D on the left and middle plant which is Watersprite (Ceratopteris thalictroides) and Piedmont primrose willow (Ludwigia arcuata). I'm still not 100% sure about the last one. I have a few people who think it might be from the Anubias family but as some one else said it might actually be a non aquatic plant. I still feel I should I.D it so I can still properly care for it. I will remove it from the holder today so I can look at the roots to help making I.D easier
I have to thank you guys though because you did really help me on to the right track of identifying them.
