New Plant, Dwarf Hygrophila?
 
3 Attachment(s)
I bought a new plant yesterday to replace my Moneyworth that died :-(. The LFS did'nt have any Pennywort like I was looking for so I went with what the guy told me was a Dwarf Hygrophila. But after looking at the plant profiles I don't know about that. Now I'am not sure what it is, what do you's think?

I would say that is likely Hygrophila polysperma. It is certainly a Hygrophila from the leaf structure.

It's Willow Hygro, AKA Hygrophila corymbosa 'Angustifolia' (or Hygrophila Angustifolia) I believe.

Put it in the brightest part of your tank, plant the stems at least an inch apart, and if nutrients are good, you should be fine.

EDIT:Byron, you beat me to it. ;)
