The top one looks like Pistia stratiotes or water lettuce. The bottom one is Salvinia natans. Not related as far as I know.

I'm not totally certain but pic 1 looks very much like Water Lettuce but #2...my first thought was Amazon Frogbit but I'm sure that's not right.
Hopefully someone can put a name to it?

I've heard that with water lettuce you need to have some space for them under the hood, otherwise they die off

Artane Aquatics had a load of Amazon Frogbit when I was in about two weeks ago. Lovely plant.

i think that photo clarifies it I think. I was going to ask, are the leaves waxy or velvety. Pistia is covered in small, fine hairs and frogbit isn't. Also, the striations on the leaves are suggestive of water lettuce

I think it's frog bit, It grows in one of tanks then I feed it to my terrapins. They love eating it!

I know seahorse had some and also Miami heat in here has some too.

I have dwarf water lettuce and frogbit in my tanks and used to have some salvinia natans.
The first picture is dwarf water lettuce, the second one is salvinia natans.
Frogbit has is dark green and glossy with really long roots.
The ones you sent me esoxlucious were dwarf water lettuce, my favourite one, the roots are beautifull.
Got sick of salvinia natans, had to compost a handfull every week.
