It looks like Sumatran fern to me.:squint:
They can be grown as floating plants but the leaves will be thicker.:wink2:

Sooo what does that mean. Well I know what it is but is it fine where it is? I was sure it should be a good grower.

It's best as background plant. It can grow too tall to be situated in the middle and foreground of your tank.
IMO, they are one of the plants which are easy to grow.

Looks more like Hygrophila difformis, aka Wisteria. Take a closer look to see if it looks like this...

I was going to say it looks like Water Sprite and does but there are alot starts where sprite has more of a central "rhizome" start than that. Whatever it is for sure it looks good. Nice and bushy plant.

Looks like wisteria to me.

Hey nick, do you have a more recent picture? I would like to see if it has transitioned much if any.

Also nice to see another Washintonian on the boards. Are hard to come by.

wisteria aka indian water sprite. any floating leaves you find are new plants. leave them a while and they will sprout roots, then you can re plants them
