It reminds me of bacopa, so it might be that. Is it currently flowering or are those brown leaves?

Does it look like this, bacopa monnieri?

It's gorgeous, but I can't imagine what it could be besides bacopa.

This is a bacopa species. Not sure what type, but it looks similar, yes?

It probably is bacopa but was grown emersed and won't show the aquatic form until it melts and starts to re-grow in the tank in water. To minimize the mess, I would take it out and remove as much of the flowers as you safely can without hurting the plant, they are just going to die and decay in water, then just put it back and wait for it to start growing, clipping off any brown/dead/decaying areas as it adjusts.
