    There isn't a Frehwater ID sub-forum, so I thought I'd post here.

    I need the ID of these 3 plants and some tips for care (if any)

    I am not too familiar with 1 and 3 but I can tell you #2 grows like a weed in my little coldwater goldfish tank with two little 10 watt CF bulbs.

    I agree with all of the ID's.

    You may have problems with Elodea becoming brittle and breaking up, it is not a tropical plant it prefers cooler temperatures. The Anubias grows very slowly and can end up with algae on the leaves. The Bacopa should be a fairly trouble free plant.

    Just add fertilizers as needed. Maybe some Seachem Excel (CO2 source) if you want faster growth.

    #1 is Anubias, #2 is Anacharis, and I'm not sure about #3, but I know I've seen it before. :)
