Help before it dies! (Picture)

I am in no way shape or form a plant person, in fact I have successfully killed bamboo and yet I seem to keep acquiring plants. I received a money tree (pachira aquatica?) and it was doing just fine and then I noticed this lovely green and pink plant growing beside it. I have since moved my money tree to a bigger pot but I'm not sure what this plant is or what it requires to stay alive. Is there a way to prune it so it fills up more of the pot it is in?

I have managed not to kill a peace lily or my tree with the help of google so I'm thinking with a little education this little guy might have a chance!
