Identify and Help 50gallon

http://may26.imghost.us/hvojsp.jpg
That is the plant I bought at Petcetera for 3.99. I'm not sure (and the lady wasn't either) of what this plant might be. I bought it anyways because it was fairly big and I was sure people at the forums could help identify it.

that is most likely hygrophila difformis, it was sold to you in its emersed form, grown partially above water. As it adjusts the leaf form will completely change and the emersed leaves will die off. It will probably suprise you how different it will look. Look up the name in the plant database for pic's. Its also fairly undemanding and should grow well for you. I currently grow clippings from the same plant I bought four years ago.

best regards
