Yeah, red temple leaves look thicker. This looks like nesea to me too.

You might want to spread the stems out so the lower leaves get more light.

This is true; also I find that after awhile the lower part of the plant may begin to look a little ratty. You may want to place it behind a foreground plant to hide the lower portion.

I have red temple and it definately doesn't look like that. Mine is a little more pinkish and, yes, thicker leaves. Its best to cut it frequently and replant if the cuttings aren't too ratty. If the lower leaves don't get enough light, they'll start to turn greenish, like mine. I also had some snails that liked to eat holes in the leaves...grrr!
