2 Plant ID's Please

Hi gang. I have two plants that are growing great, I just do not know what they are. Any ideas? The first one is a ground cover, the other is the stem plant that is slightly pink/light green. Ideas? Thanks!

2nd pic looks like Rotala Indica.

1st is HM?? I've not had that plant before, so I'm sure someone else can chime in.

Wow that was fast. I assume that by HM you mean Hemianthus Micranthemoides?

I thought the second might be a rotala species, just need to figure out which one. I'll keep looking! Thanks for the help!

Your Rotala looks like Indica. Rotundifolia has wider leaves.

HM is Hemianthus Micranthemoides.

Agree with the HM, it looks pretty low growing there! Mine are always at least several inches tall

This is rotala indica.



This is rotala sp. green. Both look very similar, and could be in the OP's tank.

Rotundifolia would appear much more red, especially at the top of the tank.
