I never planted anything that looked like this. Anyone know what it is?



This one seems to be the first that popped up in the tank, but I found a whole mess of it free floating on the back end of the tank above/around the filters return line.

Any pointers to what it is would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Jon

I thought Anacharis myself, but the only anacharis we had in here before was always free floating, it never rooted, and the stems were easily 3 times as long, with leaves atleast twice as long. I guess this could just be some younger form of it, but it's been very slow to grow, where as the anacharis we had before grew like crazy.

The free floating stuff in the back of the tank (uprooted by the guppies I belive) is trying to put down roots, so I assume these have roots as well.

I have some of this though I don't know what it's called. I do remember being told to cut it every 2" and replant it for a carpet effect

-I love getting 'mystery plants' in w/ the plant bunches I buy Wink

It looks a lot like my baby tears that I have in my tanks.

Micranthemum umbrosum
