    Hello everyone!
    This is my first post and I come to you to see if you could help me identify these three plants. I have been looking through different profiles and have found some similar looking ones but not positive on an ID. Thank you in advance!

    I'm no expert and mainly a newbie myself. My guess is some sort of sword, val, and bacopa.

    I believe that's right ^^^

    The second one is either corkscrew val or val spiralis... depending on locality ;) The first is likely a sword, though I don't know what kind. I have what looks like the exact same plant and was never able to accurately ID it. The third I think is a ludwigia, but it's hard to tell in that picture. Maybe look up some varieties of ludwigia and bacopa and see what fits the best.

    Welcome to fishlore, by the way :)

    Funny to know Vallisneria Spiralis hasn't spiral leaves hahaha !!! It's called spiralis cause of something about the flower !!!

    Thanks everyone! I have a 10g with these three plants as well as hornwort, java moss, and anarachis. Do you think Co2 is necessary for my tank? I only just started to do research about Co2 so I still don't know much about it honestly.

    You don't want co2 unless you have fairly high light. Having it in a tank without appropriate lighting tends to lead to too much dissolved carbon in the water, which can do bad things to your ph.

    Oh okay! Thanks for the heads up...
