Moneywart Live Plant?

I don't think my Moneywart is a Moneywart... its melting like a crypt, and it looks like the leaves are disolving into some crazy filmy webbing? My scarlet Ludwigia's are turning red, and looking good, but this Moneywart confuses me. =/

Its newly planted, but still? I'm on the verge of wanting to take it back because it looks so out of place in my tank, and I really don't want to deal with it slowly dying if this keeps up. .____. Maybe I should take it out of its bands that weigh it down and plant it all along the back wall when I re-add my divider.

I'd go to either the planted section in TropicalFishForum.com (which bettafish.com is a part of) or plantedtank.net. Both are very knowledgable places to get information and ask questions. :)

That's definitely moneywort, it looks just like the bunch of moneywort I have in my tank. Did you recently put it in the tank? I know mine melted a little bit when I first got it, and it's only just now starting to regrow.

Often times a new plant in a tank has to acclimate. This means losing leaves and dying off a bit and then coming back. It is probably just acclimating. Give it a week or two.
