looks possibly like Limnophila sp. 'mini'

Hard to tell what size the leaves are - usually they are under 3/4 in in lenth, but the color can be highly variable depending on conditions.

Leaves are about 1"-1.5" long, maybe 0.25" wide. Moderately fast grower.

The plant in the link looks like it could be it.

if the leaves get a 'sparkly' look to it, then that's my bet.....

Yes, they do. That's when I said to myself, "wait a minute...this isn't Ludwigia brevipes!" Not a bad little plant. It's very easy to grow.

I think you're both correct. Thanks!

Yup, I agree. Limnophila sp. 'Mini'.

Very nice! I think more people should put the plants they have in their signature like you have. Sure would make it easier to send a PM for a trade or possible clippings of something you have been looking for.
