Aww, that doesn't help. I can easily see the veins in that pic but the leaves have a pinkish tinge. >.<

It's definitely not echinodorus as no member of that genus has stems that long. It's definitely a crypt of some sort.

Some can. If the light is not strong enough, the stems get "leggy" as they try to reach for more light.

What do the leaves look like now?? Are they still pointing up or have they folded out?

It's still standing up if you guys are wondering. :D
I think it's a crypt, cause it's still alive. The only thing I can keep alive is crypts. :p

From The 101 Best Aquarium Plants by Mary E. Sweeney

"Riccia is a liverwort. What you see is a dense mat of thousands of individual branched-forked thalli shaped roughly like divining rods."
