You know I can name just about every other plant in that tank but I've never seen anything like that one before.

It's a type of Cabomba I think. Someone mentioned it the other day so I did a google search and looked at all the pics. It looks very similar.

Looks like some sort of myrio, probably myriophyllum mattogrossense.

I gotta dissagree man, cabomba has more fan shaped leaves than that plant.

biggest difference I've found between the two, while they look similar cabomba is alot messier with all it's fine needles.
