Plant

I saw this plant in someone else's album so i was wondering if someone could identify it for me.

https://www.plantedtank.net/forums/at...tid=1438&stc=1

It's the one in the back corner. I am currently looking for a plant to cover the same corner of my own tank. I have tried ancharis but i really don't like the look.

To me, it looks a bit like Alternanthera reineckii. But, it almost looks too dark red and I don't note the bronze leaf undersides. Perhaps it is a variant of the plant.

My best *guess*!

alternanthera. r. macrandra has thinner leaves, less pointed. Also notice the roots along stems, alternanthera is more prone to that.
