    I agree with both members, red stem plant is a Ludwigia, and the other may be an Hydrocotyle.

    Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]

    nice!
    Hydrocotyle moschata looks like it, and its native to california so it is probably it
    cant find any info on if it can be fully submerged or just halfway in the water though, anyone know?

    I researched the tropical aquarium species, Hydrocotyle leucocephala (commonly called Brazilian Pennywort), for a profile I wrote, and learned that it is found throughout Brazil, occurring in moist areas, flooded forest and slow-flowing streams; it grows emersed along the banks of streams as a creeping ground plant. This plant will grow in damp bog conditions, along the moist surface as in a paludarium or terrarium for amphibians.

    I can't say if the temperate species that you found in California will do the same, but it is likely, as such traits generally run across a genus. It may, however, need a rest period during which it dies back, as most temperate aquatic plants do.
