Does anybody know what plant this could be? I had it brought home to me a month ago (to the day) without the little tag saying what it was. It was bought in a Maidenhead Aquatics shop, and seems to be fast growing with a fair amount of "branches" falling away and floating up to the top of the tank every few days. As a follow-up question, can I replant these stray bits that drop off?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Could be....I had anacharis long ago, very messy with all of those branches breaking off...and the ones that didn't break off had all kind of detritus caught up in them...glad I got rid of it, lol
I'd love to switch up my plants, buuut... My arms are super short and it's kind of hard to reach down to the bottom of the tank. Especially now that my shrimp's made his dwellings in the plants. He scares me.

Water weed (Elodea densa). Fast growes. Provides oxygen. And does have a broad temperature range that you can keep at.
