Mystery Plants

Could someone help me identify the plants I have in my Betta's home? I just picked them at random at the pet store but I would love to be able to research them. Sorry my husband is traveling with the camera so I had to use my cell.

The first one I think is a Dwarf Bacopa.
I don't know of the second one.
The last one does really look like an Amazon sword, or at least a plant that looks very close to it. I have an amazon and compared it and they look very similer. I don't know what else it would be.

It might be a broadleaved amazon sword, here is a link:

Whatever it is I am having a real bugger of a time keeping it anchored in my gravel. Does anyone have a nifty way (and easy pls) that I can make my plants stay in the gravel and not float, and make it easy to place them again after water changes???

I think the last one is in the Anubias family? That's what the girl said but she didn't know any of the others and they sell them for petes sake!!

Mine would float out sometimes, so I got some river rocks and placed a bigger one on the roots, that keeps it from floating out. The roots will start to grow in the gravel. :)
I don't think it would harm the roots unless the rock was so heavy it crushed it...which the river ones I used haven't done. I put one on one root on my anubas plant so it won't float and it hasn't hurt it either.

Try posting a pic of the mystery plant in the plant section of our parent forum TropicalFishKeeping.com. Someone should be able to tell you what it is.
