Is this Anacharis?

I bought a bunch of this plant at Petsmart that they called "Bush Plant". It looks very similar to Hornwort, but more fine. I have only seen Anacharis in photos so I can't tell if that's what it is. Is Anacharis the only other aquatic plant that looks similar to Hornwort?
Anyway, I put a bunch of sprigs of this "bush plant" floating on the top of Lila's tank and she loves it! It's so cute to watch her weaving over and under and in between. It's better than the hornwort because it's less dense. She could swim around a few sprigs of hornwort in her tank, but she couldn't swim through and under and over like she can with this stuff.

Ok, here's a picture. It's the floating stuff in the center and to the left. The stuff on the right weighted on the bottom is hornwort.
Aww, isn't Lila cute?

I don't think it's anachris. I'd guess it was hornwort or something similar. They sell hornwort at my local petsmart as well, never paid attention to the label.

Hmm. Ok. They did have hornwort there, too. It's very similar but not as dense. Weird.

Hehe thanks! She is super cute and really little. She's about an inch and a half. I think she might still be really young because she still has stripes after having her for a week already (they've faded a lot, though).

Yes! I think that's it! I looked it up and it's also called Fanwort.
Cool. Thanks.
Petsmart called it "Bush Plant" haha.
