Well, it was sold to me as such, and I love it. Doesn't look like any of the common types though.
Unless it's polysperma? But it doesn't look as neat as polysperma to me...

From the photos I would say it is likely Hygrophila. And the shortish leaves would suggest H. polysperma as possible, rather than H. corymbosa which is also common in the hobby.

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]
