Can someone tell me what plant this is?? Don't mind the glofish photobomb lol

I got it in a plant pack I ordered when I first started the tank. It was very small and had remained that way until recently. It has really taken off as of late and I quite like it.

Crypt. Wendtii Bronze I assume. I have the green variation of that. They root deep and hard lol.

That's no joke!! I had one that was sort of getting lost in my swords. I can't believe the effort it took to pull it out of the substrate.

Thanks by the way. How big do they get? My were tiny when planted. Suddenly they have gotten much, much taller. I really like the look

Pic is really bad. Leaves are a mixture of red and green.

All Crypts seem to be deep-rooters. I also have a C. Aponogetifolia only for a month and when I tried to move its location it was too late - the bugger won't budge at all.

I am not exactly sure about the height of Wendtii. They can be huge methinks. Mine is about 13cm at the moment.

Wendtii's have a lot of phenotypical variety. Mine never grow more than a couple inches tall, but some people have their's growing 10-12"
