Profile for El Nino Fern
 
Hi, just curious if anyone can give a breif profile on the El Nino Fern. I saw this at Petsmart and was thinking of getting a good bit. I don't see it in this site's profiles. If it has a different name, I'm not sure what it would be. Let me know if you need a pic. Thanks.

Is this it? Aquarium Home Care : - Acrostichum heteroclitum [El Nino Fern or Bolbitis heteroclita]

If that is it I have read on another site it does better with water movement

The rhizome the part that the leaves come out of also the part the roots form from. If you get this plant you know what I am talking about when you see it. Its kinda hard for me to explain lol

Also wanted to say I have never heard of this plant nor seen it till you asked about it. So I am not sure how it does other then what that page says but if you source the internet you can probably find more information.
