what type of plant is this?

Hi Judy,
I received this plant as a present and have no idea what it is. This is my first houseplant and I am not sure where to put it without knowing what it is? Also there is bright green growth under the main plant, is it new growth or a different plant? Thank you so much for your time

Hi Dena,


Your plant looks like a Goldfish Plant. Goldfish HousePlants have hundreds of small, thick, shiny, dark green leaves and colorful flowers that resemble tiny goldfish. The bright green growth at the bottom is part of the same plant. Here is what a Goldfish Plant looks like in Bloom.
