cabomba question

I have three plants in my tank that are similar but distinct, can you help me positively identify their genus/species?

1. was sold as "cabomba caroliniana" -has bright green stem and leaves, the leaves grow right from the stem in the wagon wheel type shape, the tips are rounded, and grows faster than any other plant I have.
2. was sold as "cabomba" -darker in color, the leaves grow from the stem in paired branches that then spread out in the wagon-wheel shape, and the tips are more squared, if that is the right word.
3. was sold as "ambulia" -is similar to #1 but the leaves are finer and have pointed tips, and it doesn't grow as tall.
