    Upgraded to a 20g and got this plant from the previous owner. Can you help ID?

    It looks like wistera to me. How big are the leaves and how thick are the stems?

    I tried getting a closer view. Not sure about the thickness of the stems. The leaves are not that big. Maybe thumb size. Thanks.

    It's a pretty tall plant though. My main purpose for ID'ing the plant is so that I can know whether this plant should be floated or not. It seems that the leaves at the top, nearest the light, are thriving more than the ones near the bottom.

    Agreed on it being water wisteria, those leaves may begin to morph into longer split leaves once it gets situated. It can be floated or planted. Mine grew a strong root base and thick stem when planted which wilted and developed smaller more numerous roots when floated.
