Beautiful Flower found today!

Glanced in my tank early this morning and found this surprise. This plant has had the ugliest brown bulb on it for months and I wasn't sure what it was, now I know. This is the most beautiful aquatic flower I have ever seen. I believe it also gave me 6 tiny, tiny seeds, we will see if they produce more plants.

So excited to share pictures.

Oh wow, that's gorgeous, peachii! What kind of plant is that?

Sunshine: a yellow veiltail. Moonshine: a crazy mix of blue, black, purple, and copper deltatail. Clark: a red and blue feathertail. And Jack: my dream betta, a solid white EE plakat.

It's a Cryptocoryne pontederiifolia I was just told. And it's not proper to call it a "flower" so it's my beautiful "Not-A-Flower". :P

I googled Cryptocoryne pontederiifolia and that's not the same flower. It has a spath like a calla lily. It's very interesting, though. I'm looking on line to find it and so far, nada.
