If you are asking about the foreground plant in the finished picture at the end of the article, that is Elatine triandra - I've seen the tank many times in person and it's never had Crassula in it.....

Unfortunately I can't give you any more info on the plant other than what you can find in a google search - likes high light and cooler water temps.

good luck bud

That's not it in the picture. It's much thinner leaved than that. It grows in a creeping manner, much like Rotala sp. 'Goias'. It's a great little plant if you can find some to try.
Here's a bad picture of it growing in my tank at one time:
