it's tough to tell. My rotala sp. 'green has similar coloration, but I think the leaves aren't quite as narrow. Could be wrong on that though. Didiplis diandre would probably be the next guess.

Maybe I should post more pictures from Amano to help you guys help me indentify this plants.

What I like from this plants is, it sort of can grow downwards...
Take a look at the first pic, theres sort of one strand growing outwards (in the middle bottom of the picture).
And also I see this plants in aquajournal, but it doesnt say the name of the plants.

Pic 1. The one im refering here is the plants on the left side.


Pic 2. The one im refering here is the one on top, going accross the tank.

How 'old' is this Amano tank? That's why I excluded Rotala sp. 'green' from the list, it looks like an Amano from several years back.....Rotala sp. 'green' is relatively new (1 year or so) to the hobby. That's why I'm still saying Didiplis diandra :)

The reason why I said it was Rotala sp. 'green' is b/c I saw it kind of growing horizontally. Mine does the same, but I don't know if Didiplis does that.

I think this is quite old pic ...

However, I've seen this plants in recent aqua journal too

I got didiplis diandra, and it grow straight up. Or can I grow them like that in the picture ?? If so, how ??

Well, I'll take mine back then :) Looking at the closeup picks, the leaf shape is less fine, and as everyone pointed out - the horizontal growth suggests more of the Rotala sp. 'green' .
