    Haha, let's see if you can ID this one.
    The river has a GH of 26 degrees, KH of 19.
    Found in what most would call a "desert".

    Oh this weed grows in some of the hardest water I know of..........Mono lake would be the the next step...........pH is about 9.5 here.This plant just grows and grows.

    But it's not an Ammannia, not even close.

    haha, just a guess, the growth pattern looks similar. I have no clue then, but that water is like liquid rock.... is it something that is common in the hobby? or one of those less seen plants?

    It looks like a rotala macandra, but I doubt that it is.

    Hmmm .... Ludwigia inclinata? The tops look kind of like Rotala macrandra, but the leaves seem too long.

    It's more weedy than any of those plants: here's the sword plant, E berteroi in it's only know natural range:
    These two plants grow side by side.

    Well, Ludwigia glandulosa is also out there in the Southern US, but I would not call it "weedy". This kind of looks like a Nitrate starved plant that may actually be green otherwise... Just not sure what though...

    I'll take one more stab at it...

    Gratiola officinalis or Limnophila hippuroides?

    Nope, it's not a genus that's normally kept in the hobby and there are few submersed pictures of it.

    Keep trying:)

    One guy over at TPT got it already, he just did lots of search engine rather than figuring what is really was after I gave a few hints.
