Question Identify this Plant? (Pic-Heavy)

I want to start a planted sorority, and I purchased a nice piece of malaysian driftwood. I really like the short 'grass-like' plants in the pictures below. Can anyone tell me the name of them, or a similar plant? Also where can I find them and if they are safe for bettas?

The grass plant looks like dwarf sag, usually pet stores don't carry it so order it online or Aquabid. The plant creating the lawn looks like baby tears, which needs high light and CO2, it is a very hard to keep plant. Oh and they are both safe, I also have dwarf sag and love it! You may also be interested in micro swords.

Just a heads up that if you get micro sword it grows best with soil topped with sand. I tried growing it in fluval stratum and it didn't do very well.
