    It is Echinodorus parviflorus tropica a small form sword it doesn't get much bigger than that for me. It was crowded before pushed up against the glass a few leaves have BBA on the tips but the twisting or what appears to be deformed leaves seem to be normal for me as the leaves get bigger.

    I've had Glosso, Marselia, C. parva, Monte Carlo, no interest in HC, HM or hairgrass too much of a pain for my liking.

    I'm leaning toward glosso from my limited (before co2) experience. But I have a start of 2 marsileas & "belem DHG". I had a lovely start of HM...until I added a small BN pleco...& then it was gone, filter fodder! My next guess, for me, might be staurogyne, or glosso.

    I did have e. "tropica" at 1 time, not as "warped" as yours...but no co2 either, meh. Go crypt parva!...or glosso again.

    Thanks for your patience & help...& updates...that's how we all learn.

    Well we recently had our local club meeting here for NJAGC which I'd like to take a minute to promote.
    This section is open to the public and has some write ups about our meetings if you are NJ looking for an aquarium plant club check us out. http://www.njagc.net/wp/category/meetings/ We also have a facebook page https://www.facebook.com/njagc.net/

    Here is my c. usteriana at 30 inches taken to our last club meeting. When you see the runners creeping out of the pot you know it's over due for thinning.
