Passionfish

The first one is a Cryptocoryne wendtii red, and the second one is an anubias. I can tell you the care requirements for each one if you need it:)

The Cryptocoryne wendtii will grow very slowly, and you can just dig it into your gravel. The Anubias shouldn't really be in the gravel, but I have cultured it before in gravel, so I suppose you could too, but the better way to raise Anubias is to stick it on something like driftwood. I can't remember if you have any in your tank as I type this, but if you do, find some fishing line and tie the Anubias root down to the driftwood, and it will grow on it.
Remember that these both are slow growers, so it will take some time for them to become established. Crytocorynes will grow into something like an underwater bromeliad, and Anubias will look like Anubias(I don't know how to describe it lol). Hope I helped!:)
P.S. once you see that your Anubias roots have completely stuck onto the driftwood, take out the fishing line or it will degrade and harm your fish. Don't rush this process, but just remember to keep an eye on it.

Also please take into consideration that the crypt most likely will melt away in a new aquarium, so don't get discouraged if the existing leaves will die off on your tank before new ones are coming.

If you don't want to have to bother with removing the fishing line, you can use a dab of super glue to secure the anubias rhizome to the driftwood or rock. That can stay indefinitely, and is completely safe as long as the glue is cyanoacrylate.
