The first plant looks like Amazon sword (Echinodorus amazonicus)

The second looks like green fan (Cabomba aquatica) The plant in the 3rd picture with the frog swimming.

I've an aquarium (15 gal) myself. Had aquariums forever, but not much fortune maintaining aquatic plants other than duckweed.

The large potted plant is a sword plant. Possibly Amazon Sword, but there are a number of similar species. The one to the left of it looks sort of like Hygrophila. The fish are Balloon Mollies, not Guppies.
