Thanks!
From the leaf shape it may be a Nuphar japonica (common name is Spatterdock), or an Anubias gracilis. I'm going from photos in my encyclopedia, as I've never kept either plant myself. What are its characteristics (leaf size, hard or soft leaves, size of plant, does it have a rhizome or roots, etc)?

This is another stem plant, needs good light the authorities say; I exlained problems with stem lants previously, same applies here I suspect.
