Plant identification

Just got into planted tanks. Been keeping fish on and off for 20 years. Anyway, I picked this up at Petsfart and I lost track of the packaging. It's become my favourite and I can't seem to find it with the goggler.

Perhaps Hygrophila corymbosa?

When I bought it at the same store it was listed as Temple Compacta.

Looks like hygro to me as well, and Temple Compacta is a compact form of hygro corymbosa.That stuff is tough as nails and grows like mad. Great stuff for controling nitrates in a new tank. Just be sure to prune regularly.

Thanks for the replies! After searching images, it resembles Temple Compacta the most. You weren't kidding about it being tough nails and growing fast. This stuff is almost growing out of the water! I should be able cut the stem of this plant and replant it correct?

Yes, you can cut and replant. I suggest hard pruning, as it regrows very fast and a hard trim will make it branch out and get nice and bushy. If you let it get too tall, the top will shade the lower leaves and they will fall off, leaving a bare stem (pruning will cause new leaves to grow though if this happens). You'll be giving away gobs of it in no time.
