Default Plant ID please

I'm posting in this forum because I got this plant from Sean. He said Matt (I think) brought it to him when the SWOAPE meeting was at his house.

Perhaps a Limnophila Aromatica.... http://www.photolocker.net/images/evercl92/img0239.jpg
I have them in two tanks, and they look totally different because of different light/water parameters... just my guess? (Who would of thought I'd ever chime in to a Plant ID question?!? I've emailed Matt about 30 times asking what such and such a plant is!)

Definitely looks like L. aromatica to me as well. Good call, Chris. If you pinch off a leaf or two and crush/roll them between your fingers, it should have a pleasant, herbal aroma...hence the name.

If it is L. aromatica, in great light the leaves turn purple!

Light shouldn't be an issue then, I'm running 390wt CF. And the stem is directly in the stream of CO2 launched from my powerhead.
