    Hi Jim,

    It is a hydrocotyle for sure. I have some in my tank or very similar. In the 'pennywort' broad common name range.

    Can be used anywhere I have found. It will for sure creep over rock and stone, but the roots will NOT attach to wood/stone like java or anubias..

    What Gerry Said...

    Hi Roger Thomas,

    Certainly Hydrocotyle umbellata L, Marshpennywort (or manyflower).

    If you have a paludarium or raised lighting a little wet soil and a way up, branch whatever, makes a nice transition plant, stays low and rewards the effort with lots of flowers. :)
