Plant IDs

So, I just bought these two new plants from my LFS and I have no clue what they are, I just really liked the look of them and had money to burn.

I think the top one is java fern. I'm not sure about the bottom one though. :)

Woo! Java fern! I have it planted in my substrate because it's just so big. I can't tie it to anything. Is that okay? The other one I have floating even though it was planted in the LFS. It looks better that way in my opinion.

You can use a thread to tie the java fern to anything! It cannot be buried in the substrate because it will rot and foul your betta's tank! :O

Everything I've read about Java Fern says to make sure that the horizontal brown stem...thing.. is above the gravel level. http://www.ehow.com/how_7666713_plan...-aquarium.html

What I meant was I don't have anything left to tie it to. ;) My driftwood is growing anubias and my cave on the other side already is covered in java moss. I have some river rocks I can try to rubber band the moss to.
