Is this moneywort or something else?

trinity28

I ordered some moneywort on eBay and it came in about a week ago. The seller stated that you would get a free mystery plant with each order. I received a few stems, about half of which are the moneywort I ordered. The plant with the pink coloration, I don’t know what that is. It’s growing new rounded green leaves on the top of the stems that look kind of like moneywort, but the rest of the leaves are narrow and pink. Is it possible this is also moneywort, or is it something else?

Also, there are several long roots growing down from various areas on the stems. Do I need to plant it differently and try to get those roots into the substrate, or will it be okay how I have it?

Please note this is my first planted tank so I pretty much have no experience with this
Also, sorry for the dirty glass, my dog likes to watch the fish, haha.

Yeah, I also saw in a YouTube video that when you first get the plant it has weird looking leaves and the regular moneywort leaves will grow out on the top. That's why I was confused.
