Pulled this plants out of the creek today. Anyone know what they are?

I have something that looks like that in my aquarium... Is it a type of rotala? I thought I had rotala indica but when I image search it, it doesn't look like that. Maybe someone with more info will chime in!

ludwigia sp.

the plant was growing horizontal making a good carpet plant, I also saw what looks like some type of bacopia at other places there to but didn't grab none of that.

Ludwigia palustris. Good, solid aquarium plant that's under appreciated.

This Ludwigia palustris stuff looks to grow vertical and all the plants that I got was growing horizontal.

It creeps when growing above water. Submerged, it doesn't.

It reminds me of Ludwigia repens in my aquarium.

This was in about 8 inches of water and I don't think we've had enough rain to raise the creek that much. I'll see what it does after I get it in my tank. Thanks

Will this stuff handle a 19:1 bleach dip or should I do a peroxide dip? Going to grow some emersed too since my swords didn't make it.

It does not handle bleach dip well, at least in my experience with another ludwigia sp(not the one you have).

What about a quick dip in a Potassium permanganate (KMnO4) solution?

Those are clearly emersed leaves, and I can even see some fruit.
