It's Alternanthera Reineckii. Tough plant to grow without high light and CO2.

Been in tank almost 2 weeks now. I think I do see some of the bottom leaves starting to melt maybe, from lack of more light no doubt then. Thanks for IDing the plant for me! :)

I agree with redchigh. And PonyMan, do you know about our profiles? If you noticed in redchigh's post the name of the plant species is shaded, which means we have it included in the profile; you can click on the shaded name to see that profile. Thought I'd point this out in case you weren't aware of the profiles. There are photos and information on the plant in the profile.

The aquarist is one who must learn the ways of the biologist, the chemist, and the veterinarian. [unknown source]

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]
