    Blyxa Japonica, easy plant to grow, you should be able to grow it with CO2 and liquid fert.

    FYI it is a stem plant and as said by Robert, it requires good CO2 and dosing.

    Growth form varies depending on lightig level of the tank. Grows short and red in high lighting while tall and green in low.

    That looks more like Blyxa echinosperma although the only way I am able to separate the two in a vegetative state is that B. japonica has a brownish to red colour under optimum growing conditions whereas B. echinosperma stays fresh green.
