Unidentified plant

I just bought a plant that I swore was dwarf baby tears, but when I looked it up I realized it was way too red, so I am wondering what it is. Right now it's floating trying to get some roots on it, but until I get an actual pic of it I will just describe it. The pic will come tomorrow probably, it's red and green with small round leaves. I'm pretty sure it's a stem plant that's supposed to be rooted, it is small and thin. This is the best description I can come up with right now, anything else will be provided if you ask, and I promise a pic tomorrow. Also there are some new plants in my tank so new pics of that will be up soon.

Thank you for any ideas

We will need a photo. Plants with small round leaves that are reddish is too vague.

XD thought so lol, I finally found my camera and got a pic. So here are a few,







I find it really quite pretty, but sometimes I wonder if this isn't the natural color for it? IS that possible?

That's definitely a Ludwigia. Most likely L. repens.

I agree, it is Ludwigia. And probably Ludwigia repens, the most commonly-available species. You can read more about it in our profile, click on the shaded name to see it. It will explain the colouration and provide guidance for care. This stem plant would be better planted, with the cut ends of the stems in the substrate.
