It looks like a java fern to me.
The guy at Petco just said it was a "sword" plant. He didn't seem to know which one.

Also according to him there's no such thing as low light plants

I notice my local Petsmart had some tiny trumpet snails in one of their tanks a couple weeks ago. They said they were actually trying to get rid of them, they weren't merchandise. I walked out with a pair of free snails

So I MIGHT or might not have a pair of those in my divided tank (Really, I don't know, see below). This type is also a low bioload snail type and I like their shell shape. They are harder to find than mystery/apple snails though.

Now, they are also highly nocturnal and love to hide, so since adding them, I haven't seen 'em again. But the algae does seem to be getting sparser...

Looks like a java fern to me too. In which case, you should not bury the rhizome in the gravel. Let it rest on top or tie it to a piece of decor (or driftwood, or a rock....)

Thanks. I'll fix that tonight. I was trying not to bury it all the way but I can't tell what anything is with all the roots matted together. I did plant my anubias and just pulled the rhizome above the gravel.

Oh, and by the way I'm a "she" not a "he". =) (Sorry, that was bothering me)
My apologies, it was my first post after months of lurking.

That's okay. It's only my second thread so it's not like anyone knows me around here.
