    Hi guys, could you please help ID this stem plant I got with the setup from Hawk?
    They are not planted at the moment but growing as a floating ball. He thinks it is a type of rotala but not sure. Might be a ludwigia also?
    Many thanks!

    Under the right conditions it is a very fast growing plant, and needs constant trimming.

    Rotala tends to have a narrower leaf, and doesn't grow as many side roots.

    Thanks a mil @Pezulu !
    Perfect example of how differences in light and ferts can influence a plant’s appearance. I have ludwigia repens in both my other tanks but didn’t recognize it :)
    Hawk had CO2 injection on this tank
