What do you think this plant is?

Sorry for the slightly blurry picture, this was taken with my phone at a bar I was at last night. First time I'd ever been there, but was pretty impressed when I saw a 10g, 20 gallon long, and a 50 gallon long set up with live plants etc. There was what looked to be a Bolivian ram in the 10 gallon, and some gourami's and an upside down catfish in the 50 gallon. I never actually saw anything in the 20 gallon, but I probably wasn't paying enough attention... plus it was on the other side of the bar.

Anyway, the plants in the picture were in what I think was a 50 gallon long but I couldn't figure out what they were. I'm assuming some type of crypt but I could be way off.

Can anyone tell what this may be? I did notice that it had a "stem" that traversed horizontally along the top of a rock (which it was connected to by the roots) and from that it had individual leaves coming up from there.

Agree, that is Java Fern, and quite a nice looking one too. You can find out more about it in our profile, just click on the shaded name.

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]
