    Just a guess as I'm new to plants (but love the look in my tank),

    Water Primrose
    Ludwigia repens

    Doesn't match the ones I've looked at but it's really close.
    Warning; Bulldog Pleco guarding my Sons tank now..

    Please remember; every keystroke has a consequence.

    I'm pretty sure it's not a ludwig, but I've never seen anything like it before. If i had to guess maybe Rotala macrandra or Telanthera Rosefolia.

    Where did you get it?

    Definitely not telanthera rosefolia (Alternanthera reineckii). I've had that one.

    To be honest, those leaves don't look like submersed growth to me. Identifying aquarium plants can be a bit difficult without aquatic growth on them. Many times the emergent growth will look much different than the submersed leaves.

    I'm fairly new to keeping fish, but I have a purple waffle (not aquatic, I learned after purchasing it), but with the above quote in mind, maybe it could be this? Good luck with your ID of it.

    In order to identify a plant, there are several features, leaves must be pointed out. The first is the overall shape. The leaves of some plants have a very clear shape, can be used alone to determine the plant. Most users, similar plants from other species. Therefore, usually require more information.

    I also think it may be emerged growth, but I could be wrong. It's definitely not purple waffle, though. The undersides are BRIGHT purple and if it fades back, it's pretty much dying, which this plant is definitely not.
