Not quite, it's water sprite which looks similar but has thinner leaves/formation. There is also n. Taiwan (light green lily) and flame moss attached to several peices of driftwood in there but they're hard to see when the water sprite is left untrimmed like this for a while.

I did a 20 gal water change with water softner water and 5 gallons of RODI water today. I'm going to do it again in a couple days and see what I get. If that doesn't work I'll go larger changes with RODI water. My unit only does 24 GPD so it will be running alot if I have to do that!

The Pogo in there is not long for this world. Its slowly fading and with all the cories they grub it up before the roots have a chance. I think I'm going to stick some tennulus in that spot.
