Bought plants from Petco, has no clue what they are

So I bought 'assorted plants' from Petco, not the ones that they keep in a tubes, but the ones that they keep in a tank.

I have no clue what kind of plant they are though. Can any of you guys help me identify them so I know how to take care of them?

The first one looks like this:


And the second one looks like this:


I'm not sure if these images help, but I can take more if needed!
Thanks!

The first one kind'a looks like Wisteria, but I'm no expert. The second... I've seen it, but can't pull a name out of my head

The second one looks like a much healthier version of my bacopa.

The first looks like wisteria that hasn't been in very good light, and the second looks like moneywort/bacopa. :)

The first one looks like wisteria that was grown out of the water.

The first one is definately Wisteria that has been grown emersed. Once submerged it will look much neater. Check this out for identifying plants and finding possible other plants.

Awesome! Thanks, you guys! I was about to buy an Wisteria because the one I had looked so different from the pictures. And thanks for the site, Glitchsniffer! I will now lose many hours reading about plants.

They weren't in the greatest condition when I bought them, the bottom part of the moneywort had lost its leaves. I think cause they were not getting enough light. Hopefully, I can take care of them. If not, then I will just have to put them in a pot outside and hope for the best.

The first is wisteria, I love that plant! The leaves may transform and look much different, I don't know if that is what the leaves look like if grown imersed or what.

The second is bacopa carolina, it is a really nice plant as well.

I would suggest having a plant light if you don't already. That is where most people mess up with plants, they don't have the correct bulb. A bulb around 6500k-6700k is best.
