Here is the plant. I just trimmed it, so it may not look very characteristic. It sort of like rotala rotundifolia, but the leaves are much longer:

Thanks!

I have both in the same tank mixed together in the same stand...I'm pretty positive that's arcuata...brevipes has significantly wider stems/leaves

Yes, probably L. arcuata. L. brevipes has leaves that are usually green right at the stem, graduating to orange farther out. It also grows more of a hedge than up. It's stockier and with leaves that are a bit wider.

Thanks guys, I have studied all the versions closely, it is Ludwiga Brevipes, no doubts. Here is another picture from long time ago, before any trimmings, when the bush wasn't so dense and there were enough space for leaves to fully develop.
