    It's very pretty it looks a bit like alternanthera reineckii lilacina but a more subdued one in colour.

    It does look a little like ludwigia though too

      Bahahahaha that's a fake plant! I see them in petstores.

        Yeah, it looks fake to me also.

        Rotala ramosior 'Florida' has some similar coloring since you are looking for something like that. I have't figured out where to get some yet though.

            Look up Purple Bamboo. It is now my favorite aquatic plant to date

              Even a lot of fake plants are modeled after real ones. all though they sometimes take liberties with the coloring of them. It does remind me of some type of ludwigia.

                When I started getting into real plants, I noticed that all my fake plants were modeled after something real - cabomba, corkscrew val, etc. I agree it looks like it's supposed to be a ludwigia.

                You could get some pink hippo grass chevyguy has some pretty vibrant flowers in his tanks too.
