Hi all - this little guy tagged along in a bag of ludwigia I just got at my LFS. I went ahead and stuck him in the gravel. Looks to be about 2" high. Any thoughts on what it is? Thanks!

I have had many look like this. Just give it some light and CO2 and it will grow great. Once it gets about 2-3 inches of new growth I would cut it and stick it in the gravel. Just to get rid of the dead on the bottom.
