Anubias ! All types. and crypts as well :)
i really love all Anubis varieties. It was my first love in my relationship with planted tanks years ago and will always have a special place in my heart. Now though I have begun to appreciate all the different types of crypts, the harder to find/grow types. I have quite a few rarities in the journal in my sig "crs/crypt playground.

But, for an all time single favorite plant I would have to go with Polygonum Sao Paulo. It add a beautiful red coloration to any tank and is about the best behaved stem I have ever kept. It grows pole straight up and down and can be made into a beautiful stand if you make it happy and have a little patience.

Pics from my tank. :)

I love my Scarlet Red Temple. The underside of the leaves have a gorgeous color and they are fun to watch at night because the leaves stand straight up like they are reaching towards the light!

What's the scientific name?
Umm, I'm pretty sure it is Alternanthera Reineckii. I'm not good with scientific names at all. I only remember what the labels said the more common names are. Although when I search 'Alternanthera Reineckii' it pulls up variations of this plant, but its the scientific name that fits it closest.

Wow I just bought some of these from petsmart. LOL! they sell it in an airtight package with agar gel to keep the plants from dehydrating + nutrition. o_O I planted them outside in my outside tank... I hope they'll do fine o_O
