Plant ID please!

Hey everyone, so when I got this plant from a friend I thought it was some type of greenish ludwigia (the beat up leaves on the bottom are from when I planted them) but as it acclimated to my tank and started growing under co2+high light it's more of a red/burnt bronze now. Anyone have any idea what this might be?

Looks as though it can be a regular Ludwigia Repens.
They can be bright red under the conditions in your tank(HL+CO2).
But don't take my word on this unless other also think that is what kind of plant it is.

The shortest distance between any two points is a straight the opposite direction...
