The grass-like one on the bottom left is most likely a micro sword. The big green leafy one... amazon sword or melon sword (maybe?). Not sure about the floating one ^^;

Agree with aokashi- it looks like mondo grass. I had three of these, they all rotted and smelled horrid :/ I suggest anacharis over that.

the floating plant is mondo grass. This isn't a fully aquatic plant. The pet stores "may" say or do it but its not meant to be. Its like bamboo; it will rot and turn to mush and make the tank all nasty and gross.

i have a good idea for your mondo grass :D rest the roots on the betta hammock and allow the leaves to stik out from the water :D this way you have a great ammonia sucker and dont have to worry about it rotting!
