The one on the left looks like bacopa caroliniana; the one on the right- a species of ludwigia.

If that’s what the one on the left is is it a problem that all of them only have leaves at the very top?
yes, i have that problem too... it is probably lack of nutrients,

That has happened to mine when there wasn’t enough light penetration. I suppose it could also be a nutrient issue. You can clip and replant the tip.
