Is this Cryptocoryne pontederiifolia (Cript 1)?

Looked all through the Freshwater Plants section. Can't seem to figure out what mine is. The closest appears to be Cryptocoryne pontederiifolia (Cript 1) but even with Googling other images, it doesn't seem quite right.

Please let me know if any of you do!

Thanks! I think you're right. I didn't realize that if you clicked on the pic (as opposed to just rolling over it) that you get to see an even bigger picture of it. The smaller pics didn't look like it to me, but the bigger one did. Also, the guy at the store said that it was a super easy plant and a good one to start out with.

Thanks again!

welcome to the forum! i agree with kitten_penang. I believe that it is some form of anubias. It is hardy plants that grows slowly and is good under low lights. It looks really nice in an aquarium :D

Remember to keep the rhizome above the gravel or it will rot. You can also attach these plants to driftwood and rocks.
