Dwarf Sag or Pygmy Chain Sword?

I cannot figure out if this is pygmy chain sword or dwarf sag. Sorry for the bad pics. I had to take them with my laptop (extremely hard to hold a laptop steady in front of an aquarium) because my phone decided to have camera problems.

Could be either, but given the short growth I would think more likely Helanthium tenellum. This is mentioned in our profile of Sagittaria subulata.

The aquarist is one who must learn the ways of the biologist, the chemist, and the veterinarian. [unknown source]

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]
