New Plant, Dwarf Hygrophila?

I bought a new plant yesterday to replace my Moneyworth that died . The LFS did'nt have any Pennywort like I was looking for so I went with what the guy told me was a Dwarf Hygrophila. But after looking at the plant profiles I don't know about that. Now I'am not sure what it is, what do you's think?

I would say that is likely Hygrophila polysperma. It is certainly a Hygrophila from the leaf structure.

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]

It's Willow Hygro, AKA Hygrophila corymbosa 'Angustifolia' (or Hygrophila Angustifolia) I believe.

Put it in the brightest part of your tank, plant the stems at least an inch apart, and if nutrients are good, you should be fine.

EDIT:Byron, you beat me to it. ;)
