Thanks. I think bacopa leaves are larger, aren't they? These are tiny...

It almost looks like Bacopa monnieri, but the leaves aren't paired so that can't be right

May be one of the many types of Ludwigia; the aerial root bottom center looks familiar. Leaf sizes can vary a lot depending on growing conditions, especially with poorly fed plants, they tend to get smaller and smaller. Some emergent rotala looks similar to your plant and develops the typical long thin leaves when submerged for a few weeks. Try floating it near a light and see what happens; new growth should be visible in a few days and most stem plants won't fry in good light. Semi-emerged with strong light and ample atmospheric CO2 will get it growing about as well as any other way and give a better idea of what it may be.

For me, it seems Rotala under very bad light conditions.

Regular baby tears. Same as pearl weed?

I just trimmed 150 stems of it last night while mowing the underwater lawn.
