Picture number one almost looks like it's some kind of dracaena (lucky bamboo).
Not sure about number two, and number three is too fuzzy for me to be able to see.

Number three is almost certainly a banana plant, Nymphoides aquatica (no, not the ones that you can eat...well you can try, but they'll taste nasty), a plant related to water lilies. Characteristic banana-shaped tubers near the roots. Keep those above the gravel, or they will rot and make a big mess (not to mention severly damage the plant).

I'd agree, Dracaena sanderiana for #1. Non Aquatic and will eventually die fully submerged.

Number 3 is what is referred to as a Banana Plant. Nymphoides aquatica

The plants in the foreground of number two almost look like emmersed variants of water wisteria, which makes me wonder if it's some kind of hygrophila (water wisteria's genus). I'd say green hygrophila polysperma, but I've never seen pictures of that with toothed leaves. It could be water wisteria that was reaching for light.

Check the plants on this page out. See if any of them match it.
