It is not Ludwigia for sure. I am not sure it is the one linked above either. However, my gut tells me it is a bog plant not a true aquatic. While some of these can live in an aquarium, most cannot thrive there and will begin to die off after a few months. And yes some stores mistakenly will sell these for use in tanks when they do not belong there.
