What is this plant in Amano's tank?

Hey guys!

What is this plant in Amano's tank? It is the plant that is on the foreground of the righ side, and on the left side (not the glosso). It looks like very small clovers, or very small lilypads. Looks really neat, any ideas?

That's an easy one!

It is Hydrocotyle verticillata! Really cool, "Dr. Seuss" looking plant. it is growing in my 75G! There are photos of it in my journal:

It is still growing in and getting thicker all of the time. Amano's is shorter because I believe he is running more light in a shallower aquarium.

I thought it might be Frogbit (Limnobium spongia).

The image at AZ Gardens doesn't show the whole plant though so you don't get much of an indication of size.

Frobit is a floating plant.

I agree with Mike on this one. Looks like Hydrocotyle verticillata "whorled pennywort" to me. Having both this and frogbit I can definately say it's not frogbit. I eventually threw out frogbit because it was taking over the surface weekly like a weed.
