I am still new to planted tanks, and I was given this plant by my LFS (They lost the name of it, so I said I would take it). It is a stem plant, each stem is about 6 inches tall and the leaves curve/contour slightly.

It is the plant in the back

I hope you guys can help me I.D. this!

You've got Alternanthera bettzickiana. Unfortunately, it isn't aquatic and won't survive long under water. Check out our Plant Finder for plants that will. :eek:

I knew something was up with this plant! I mean, I got it free, so its not a major loss. Next time I will only buy plants that I recognize! Lesson learned!
