Need Plant Identification!..

I received this plant with my RCS and i have no idea what it is... any ideas?



Thanks in advance!

I should add that it's doubled or tripled in size since i got the shrimp so now i'm curious as to what it is, it's somewhat attractive.

I love this plant... If I don't watch out (and pull out lots of it every week) it takes over my tank.. I still love it

Yeah this plant grows really fast, just know that the Sunset Hygrophila is illegal to ship in the us probably since it grows really fast.

FISH, SHRIMPS, AND PLANTS RULE!

Yup, it a federally banned weed in the U.S. I used to have some that grew almost 2" a day.

Ok, I'm not sure how I missed that, but I should probably stop selling it on the S&S...
