ID some plants!

While browsing the Internet, I stumbled upon a couple of pictures/videos of some planted tanks, and there were a couple of plants that I loved the look of but couldn't identify. So, please identify-

The leafy plant in the back of this tank

And the fern-like plant on the far right side of the last video on here-

Thank you! And a bonus is if you know anything about the plants.

The plant on the right, the bushy one. I will save you all the trouble of needing to find and watch the video XD.

And I found out that the leafy plant in the first picture is Bolbitis. Thank you, LittleBettaFish!

judging by structure and how fast it's growing, i'm guessing it's watersprite. i'm not 100% sure though, but that's what it looks like.

the plant on the far right looks like cabomba, or at least close too it. watersprite is another good guess. possibly could be a fern of some sort in the top picture, they come in many different styles.

I know, it's so frustrating! The video wasn't super high quality and that picture is just a screenshot. Thanks guys, I will do further research!

African water fern possibly for the first one. I bought some this morning...

And narrow (thin) leaf water sprite possibly for the second.
