Saw this plant and like it a lot. Kinda resembles an anubius but don't think so.

Thanks

Does it have a rhizome? Looks like a crypt to me.

Could it be a Barclaya (Orchard lily)???...

Oh gez! Of course it looks like a crypt. Why are my fingers typing something that my mind is not thinking!

I was going to say barclaya, too. I just so happened to be looking at one last night on ebay. Check out this link if you're interested...

Barclaya red (http://cgi.ebay.com/3-x-Barclaya-Red-Java-Fish-Moss-Live-Aquarium-Plant-/280418604940?cmd=ViewItem&pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item414a40578c)

The color looks slightly off between the two pictures, but the lighting in the two pictures looks entirely different as well. This may be the one you're looking for. I was considering putting it in my tank, but the guy selling it recommends a pretty large one for it.

Looks like you hit on it Rue. It is purdy and is a bulb plant. Really looked like something from the crypt family. You know, crypts but spelled a-n-u-b-i-a-s.

Thank You Sun! My tank may be too small too with all I already have in it. Checking out your link now. Pewie. It's a seasonal plant. Guess I'd rather a red tiger lotus if that's the case.
