Unfortunately I believe that is a mis IDed picture, but I cannot tell what plant it is, it looks more like a water sprite. >.<

Hmm now looking at it, it might very well be watersprite now that you mention it. Although I have never personally seen it in its emersed form, I would have imagined it still having longer leafy leaves. I must say that you probably are correct though. LOL Here is a site that shows a stem in the emersed form quite well and it does look very similar to the OP's plant.

So I should let them float along the surface? And which ones? Sorry, my brains a bit slow today..

I either talk to my fish when I'm mad, or I'm mad because I talk to my fish.
