    Picture is not as clear so can make out the leaf structure.
    I have seen it done with Ludwigia sp red and also Rotala.
    I think I remember seeing’s someone attempt it with AR mini.

    I agree, it's hard to tell. Thanks for the input.

    Yeah, that picture is not detailed enough to conclusively identify the plant, but I agree it looks like ludwigia or A reineckii mini. I'm not a fan of those types of treescapes because plants on those branches just send roots down that make it look unappealing. What we really need is an easy to care, leafy red rhizome plant.

    Também acho difícil ver pelo tamanho da foto. Mas pelo aspecto e cor parece-me Ludwigia SP vermelho.

    Would this plant do well with a Twinstar 900s led?
