Its the "Alternanthera aquatica"

Its a very hardy and easy to keep plant, with only one disadvantage. It needs an open tank.

You can keep it in any kind of water (but not marine) as long the water is wet. It grows very fast, it pulls out phosphate and nitrate, and it looks just great.

Nice plant!
