This is just a quarantine tank I'm using to grow out some plants for larger tanks later and to see what combos and transitions I like and will suit my goals.

No, it's not that dwarf lower growing species.
This one gets pretty reddish in higher light.

It's more upright.
I'm not sure the species name, it's called Hygrophila something, but there's no species associated with it, nor is there any belief that who ever gave it the trade name has a clue as to it's genus or species.

For now, I just call it Hygro red legal.
Easy to grow, makes very nice groups, easy to trim and care for, does not bolt for the surface that fast etc.

Color variable.

Beautiful

I look at the plants you have and start to cry when I turn to look at my tank. I've thought my tank was a quarantine tank in the past. Now what?

Hey,

what is that fluffy pink stem plant? It looks kinda like Rotala wallichii but way better!!
excuse the ignorance, I thought by now I was pretty good with plant names, but we dont really get interesting plants in my country so there are gaps:confused:

Stunning tank by the way!

philfarm,

way late to post this and i may be wrong, but what the hell i'll post anyways. I believe the plant you were asking about is pogostemon stellatus.
