What Did I Get?

    My LPS was having a sale on aquatic plants today 3 small bunches for 10.99, and as I've been wanting to add plants for awhile now, I got 6 problem is none of them were labeled so I have no idea what they were. I'm pretty sure 3 of the bunches are anachris and two of the bunches are some kind of grass? Hoping for a more specific ID, but then again I guess it could be just grass. The 6th bunch is my favorite, but they only had one, so i'd love to know what it's called so I can look for it elsewhere. Thanks in advance! Pictures attached

    1- Elodea/Anacharis, two different ways of saying the same thing.
    2- Could you get a more clear picture? And rotate it for me too lol. Its like I see 2 different tipes of leafs in just one plant. The taller more elongated leafs are Melon Swords but the other leafs just confuse me completely.
    3- It actually looks like a household plant to me because of the leafs and how hard they look. If it isnt a household plant then it is a Dwarf chain sword.

    First is Elodea/Anarchis.

    Let's see if this helps? I tried a couple different angles.

    Ok, definitely Melon sword now. The outer leafs look a bit weird tho. The red leafs in the middle are new growth, it will go green as it grows.

    It almost looks as if the outer leaves are from a crypt.

    Yep, that is what confuses me. I have a Melon Sword and its new leafs do come out red and have that form, a narrow "arm" and then a big leaf on top so I think it is a Melon.
