Plant ID Help

I have been browsing this forum for about 2 months now and have learned alot about planted tanks in that time. This is my first post here, but hopefully when I am more knowledgeable in plants, I can post more. I have a pic of some stem plants which I like the look of, but I cannot remember the name of or find any pics of. The plants in question is the stem plants on the right of the picture. Any help in ID'ing this plant type would be greatly appreciated.

I agree. It looks like monnieri.
I'm guessing closer to Bacopa carolina. The leaves seen to be bigger and more pointed than monnieri.

Take a leaf and crush it. If it has a pleasant "herbal" smell, then it is Bacopa carolina. If not, it is B. monnieri
Thanks for the replies. My wife and I did a sniff test after crushing up one(she thinks I completely lost it now :lol: ). It smelled just like a leaf to us, so I am going to have to say it is Bacopa monnieri, and after looking at some pics, now that I had an idea what to look at. Now I just need to find some more plants to fill up my aquarium on the other side.
