After spending a little time lurking, I only found 2 mentions of it being grown in an aquarium. One person was on this very forum, and reported it did well with high light and CO2, thought it did send out roots at every node (which apparently was annoying). The other person noted that at 20" deep, his lights (no idea what type or amount, etc.) did not provide enough light at the bottom, and the bottoms of the stems died, though the tops survived, floated to the top, and did very well. I'll give this a shot and see what happens.
My lighting is whatever the Finnex Plant+ LED provides (Dallas group has reported in the neighborhood of 45 PAR in a typical 18" deep aquarium). And I'm otherwise "low tech".

ETA: Well, did the "search" option here, and apparently this has come up OFTEN. https://www.aquaticplantcentral.com/...archid=3584987

I've grown anagallis-aquatica. It does quite well in the aquarium. Too well, in fact. I'd say it was right up there among the weediest species I've ever collected or in the hobby in general.

We also have V. scutellata around, which we collected in Washington state last year. It's more manageable and gets a bit purplish. Looks a little like a Limnophila. Not bad.

Oh yeah. Always wanted to see one of those. Well, I did see a mink, which I guess is close enough.

I was about 7 feet away from it and it didn't run away.

Now that you guys mentioned Veronica, I took this picture years ago on the Little Miami River.

Notice, lots of Ludwigia, maybe, palustris

Went out again today to the spot behind the house. Similar, just less mature due to County maintenance. Very little Ludwigia, copious amounts of a Potamogeton sp., and various other things.
Not necessarily asking for ID at this point, just sharing the field visit.

More photos. I believe that is a Ranunculus sp. growing in the water? I popped one in the aquarium and it is shooting for the top, but growing nonetheless.

Probably Ranunculus scleratus or R. abortivus
