Default Red Plant ID

Can anyone identify the red plant at the top of this photo? The picture is from another post here on dendro from 5 years ago. Multiple people asked the OP to identify it but there was no response.

Thanks!

That was where my mind went, too. But I couldn't find any that was that red.

It looks like the colors in that image have been over-saturated to compensate from being washed-out by bright lighting. Those reds - especially in the lower areas of the tank - don't look right.

I agree that it has been manipulated. However, after some PS analysis, I'm convinced that the plant is still red. It probably isn't as vibrant as it appears, but it doesn't seem to have been colored.

Some Columnea sp. comprise red leaves. They also exhibit a trailing habit such as the plant in this picture.

I couldn't find any that had similar leaves...
