Is this plant even aquatic?
I have no idea! Looks nice though. One issue is that emersed (out-of-water) growth forms can look very different, in terms of leaf shape and stem thickness, from plants grown immersed (under water). I don't recognize the plant, but then again, there are lots of plants I can't ID! If the plant fades over time, well... then oops. Just enjoy it in the meantime and see what happens.
Since I see lots of nodal rootlets coming out, I bet it's aquatic, but that's just my hypothesis.
I bet someone here can ID it for you.
You can kind of see in the photo that it has quite a few roots sprouting from all over it .
I believe this is Ludqigia. If so, then yes, it is aquatic.
Judging by the roots coming out of the nodes on the stems themselves I am guess and say it is aquatic. Through I dont know what plant species it is.
I have some ludwigia in the tank also, both brought from the same store but both look completely different. So I don't think that it's ludwigia
Shinnersia rivularis perhaps?
I'm guessing it is an alternanthera bettzickiana? common name: green hedge...
it has an aquatic cousin but is non aquatic itself...
Glad you could get it solved. When I saw the picture it screamed ludwigia to me.
