Probably Ludwigia repens but the leaves are a little long. Might be L repens x arcuata, aka "Narrow-leaf Ludwigia."

Tanks for the replies czcz and lonewolfblue, here is a picture from the tank.

I thought it was Rotala Rotundifolia?

In the tank it is almost certainly L. repens x arcuata. R. rotundifolia has thinner leaves and a much flimsier stem.
