It certainly isn't submerged green myriophyllum; the leaf structure is different and more rigid. Not sure if there is an emersed form of myriophyllum as I've only grown it submerged.

Definitely limnophila

Yes, looking more carefully again it is not Myriophyllum, I was wrong. It just doesn’t look like the Limnophila I have either, that looks more similar to Cabomba, not with single pointed leaves like that, but witht two opposite more rounded leaves, and not as firm. I wouldn‘t be totally surprised if they sold me a plant with the wrong id though.

I’m not sure but it’s a toss between cabomba or limnophila? Here’s another side profile of the plant thanks guys!

I have cabomba in my tank and in all honestly it looks nothing like that plant.

OK so I THINK this one is Limnophila:

And this one is Cabomba:

I could be wrong though....

To be honest if you had not given them different labels I would have thought they were the same plant. This is my Cabomba if it helps at all (at least that is what it was sold as):

This is actually really confusing as the two look quite similar. I noticed some time ago that I had two different species even though I bought them together. There are a lot of posts about the same question online, and from these I worked out that Cabomba has two leaves on each node, and they are finer, while Limnophila sessiliflora (also called Ambulia) have 3 arranged in a circular pattern at each node.
I found these two pictures, the first is Cabomba aquatica, the second is Limnophila sessiliflora.

To me it looks like those of the OP and Linda1234 are both L. Sessiliflora??
