I purchased these stem plants from my LFS. The gentleman bagging the plants didn't have an ID. I'm not finding the exact pic in my plant reference book and I don't want to waste time googling plant images when I know there a quite a few people who will recognize this plant instantly.

IMO looks to me like Rotala Indica which I just put in my tank today, but on mine the leaves are smaller (it's still young/)
(see it in the back there)

Thanks, Stephanie. I'll have to go read up on that. :-)

sure no problem but I was just looking and the coloring and leaf shape look similar the but tops of your plant remind me more of ludwigia or something. but those light green and pinkish leaves sure are stunning!

Dang...Stephanie is learing quick :-) - I'd say the same Rotala Indica, just a pretty pale version of it, maybe to lack of proper care at the store.
If you look at my "New 45g" ALL along the back that's all Rotala Indica as well, I love the red-green mixture :-)
