Yep! Rotala wallichii.

Beautiful plant! Loves light and CO2. Absolutely hates algae. Keep the SAEs away from it, they love the taste!

You are definitely doing things right when that plant is flourishing and growing like a weed! Good job IB!

My SAE's left my walichii alone for a few weeks. Then one day they discovered it was tasty. That was the end of my walichii......sniff sniff

I love this plant!
The SAE does trim it up terrible at times but so far it's always rebounded.

I'd give the SAE to anybody who wanted him just to save this plant.
