Is this a ROTALA?




I have this growing in my 20L tank. I started with 2 very sickly stems from my ebi tank. It has morphed into this beast. I am pretty sure it's some type of ROTALA....but I am not sure.

Does anyone recognize it?


Looking down.......

So does sp green grows even faster than rotundifolia? I like sp green alot more, but my current rotundifolia already grows like cancer and it is quite frustrating to trim all the time.
