What's this plant sorry if photo orientation is dodgey I took it with ipad Friday and I won't be at that tank for another week or two to take another.

I considered that but I'm not too sure. I have vallisneria nana on the other side of the tank it grows a lot taller and straight the leaves on this plant are smaller (10 - 15cm) and about 2mm wide are there other types of nana that grow somewhat messy like this.

I only had one of this plant so the runners on it are nice to see.

Echinodorus tenellus.

It may look and even grow like a small vallis, but its a small sword plant.
A great grass like plant that will grow in almost any tank.
It may need to be kept under control from time to time or the runners will have it popping up everywhere.

Thanks Darren this was really annoying me not knowing the name. Yea the runners do spread quick as I've seen I'm letting it get wild for now as I want a good bit for when I redo my tank (change substrate I'll keep an eye on it thou.
