Plant ID help please

I've been trying to ID this plant without much success. I'm leaning mostly towards some kind of Alternanthera, but the leaves are smaller than what I've seen them have normally.

I guess it might not even be aquatic, it certainly wouldn't be the first time a store has sold me something that wasn't :p

Looks like the energent form of ludwigia glandulosa, or ludwigia peruensis as it was formerly called.
Thanks :)
That is Nesaea sp. 'Red'. Ludwigia glandulosa has alternate leaves. It is aquatic, but almost nobody can grow it.
I have grown Nesaea sp. "Red" in a 10 gallon cube, 4.8 CFL WPG, 5 BPS.

Hope that helps.
