Plant Identification

I bought a couple plants from a local aquarium shop, not a large company like Petsmart or Pj's Pets, however I still want to make sure they are aquatic plants. I'm pretty certain I have identified one of the plants... anyways, here are the pictures.

EDIT: Images were way too large, I'll just link to smaller versions instead.

Here is the first one:

I'm pretty sure this is a corkscrew vallisneria

The first one's either water wisteria or water sprite. I'm leaning more towards water sprite though, but I honestly can never tell the two apart. No clue what the last one is, though.

I'm pretty sure the first two pictures are of the Water Wisteria. I think it has a thicker stalk than Water Sprite, but I could be wrong.

plant ID

first on definitely the old type water sprite. I have been looking for that type but cannot find it. The second is some type a val sp I think. There are several good sites online for freshwater plant ID. And check the Planted tank section.
