I'm a noob too with plants ,so here is my guess. Lycopodium clavatum aka common club moss. Not to sure not a plant person myself but I figured I would take a shot at it.

I'm innocent! :) Sry Kory...not from me.

First one definately Hornwort.

Second is throwing me off a bit. Do you have a better pic of it in the tank rather than a single stem?

My initial thought is Najas sp. but might even be Heteranthera zosterifolia (Stargrass).

i got tiny bits of #2 in java moss from the lsf, and i was also wondering what it is. as it's been growing, i've been breaking it and resticking it back in the java moss. It just keeps on growing toward the light.

i can help with pics tomorrow (if i do really have the same plant)

Pic #1. Hornwort, I bought a bunch of it and it made the biggest mess I've ever seen from a plant. It grows really well but the bottom dies off and leaves a rotten stinking mess, lol.
Pic #2. I've always called that guppy grass as well.
