Help with IDing a new plant

I just got this plant from my LFS and I dont recall what its called.. does anyone recogize this? Id like to do a little research on it and I dont know what it is. >.<

Also, does the anacharis in this picture look like it has a chance to recover? When I got it it didnt look like it was in very good shape and Ive been hoping I can maybe bring it back to good health.

Also: Would the anacharis grow better if I allowed it to float?

Don't worry about the anacharias,its a very hardy plant and will definitely recovery. Also it does grow better floating. As for the other plant I'm not sure, but I think its some kind of South East Asian plant.

okay thanks for the reply!

my boyfriend says that told me it was a laceleaf plant. I cant find anything on the internet named that that looks similar at all to this plant... I'm completely lost as to what it could be. >.<

At first glance, I would suggest the ferny plant may be the true Ceratopteris thalictroides. [C. cornuta, commonly called Water Sprite, is sometimes incorrectly named C. thalictroides, so don't let that confuse things as images on the internet may be erroneously identified.] I would have to research more to be certain, but this is a starting point.

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]
