identify this stem plant

Can anyone identify this plant?

I bought 6 new plants a week ago and they all had labels except for this one, I bought it because I thought it looked nice and so far it seems to be growing well... would like to know what it is though. It should be a common plant since I bought it at petsmart, but again it was just labeled "assorted potted plant"



30 gallon species tank
- Ameca Splendens (breeding trio - expecting first fry in Feb)
55 gallon planted
- Montezumae swordtails (7 young adults)
- Corydoras Paleatus (5 young adults)
- 2 female guppies + fry and various ghost shrimp

Looks like Ludwigia repens, which I've often seen at Petsmarts. I used to have some that did well in all sorts of lighting, though it was redder with more light.
