To my knowledge, Anubias is propogated by cutting off a portion of the rhizome (with a couple or more leaves attached) and placing it elsewhere. The leaf is more likely something else...any chance of a photo?

It kinda looks like a baby Java fern to me. Its kinda hard to tell from the pic.

ya ik sorry about that my camera isnt very good :P but im wanna say its a anubias because it kinda has that fat root thing like most anubis have underneath it.. but im just curious how it could of got there :$

Not Anubias, definitely; and while not too easy to see I tend to agree with Boredomb on it being a JF daughter plant. This plant also has a rhizome (the name for what you referred to as the fat root;-)). The rhizome of both plants should not be buried or it may rot. Attach it to rock or wood.
