I asked for the name of this plant before but have forgotten what I was told. Sorry to be asking again.

This is a stem plant, grows clear to the waters surface but remains ugly as sin, tall and lanky and no lower leaves on sections of it. I have cut if off numerous times thinking it would fill out but as you see, it just grows UP again. More light perhaps? And what is it?

Thanks guys/gals.

Could be rotala rotundifolia that is not getting near enough light.

Now that sounds familiar! I also think light is the issue here. Thanks. I think you got it.

And thank you Korith! It does look familiar but not quite right.

I agree. I have a LOT of these in my 29G tetra tank. When I first got them I had them in a low light 20G tank and that's what they looked like.
