looks like a Crypt Wendtii Green. . . I think!
I LOVE LOVE LOVE RICCIA!!!
It does float, if left to its own devices, but it CAN root, from what I've read. It usually it takes a long time and a ton of patience to get it to, but it looks like it decided to attach itself to foam? My guess is that since foam is so porous, it was pretty easy for it to grab on than if it had been a rock or driftwood (or anything you actually WANTED to attach it to, lol) So yeah! Three cheers for rooted Riccia! That's pretty cool. . . Just pull it off if you don't want it there, it won't hurt it.
Random thought: If you have ANY other floating plants in the tank, you might want to think about moving it out of there. I lost ALL my Riccia because it got mixed in with the other floaters. It's still IN the tank and alive, just not a fluffy mat of awesomeness anymore. Which is sad. . .
Random thought #2: Of ALL the floaters in the world, my frogs LOVED Riccia the MOST. It's so easy for them to tangle up in it. Kind of like fluffing up a pillow to get it super comfy. ^.^ I used to have it in my 10g frog tank, and it made them happy. Show Hunny your love. Give him Riccia!
