First One seems like bacopa. But if it is emersed form, then can be anything like Rotala Sp. too.

Second one seems like E tenellus. But I doubt on it. Might be any Terrestrial wild grass being sold as aquatic.

nope not tennelus.. its a semi terrestrial grassy plant commonly found near swamps/wetlands around here.. I dont know its real name but definitely not tennelus! They do not survive fully submerged in water though.. sorry to say n33l but its difficult to keep underwater.. atleast I havent succeeded even with full blown CO2 and high light!

that is indeed mulo dada. as far my past experience in gardening says.else it belongs to the same family as radish,carrots and turnip,etc.these are juveniles and they take at least 2 months to develop swollen roots.
and the second one looks like bog grass to me too.
