floater id?


Here's a big one


Here's a little one. Ignore the ludwigia underneath

These are floaters (maybe?) that are growing rapidly in my tank. I had originally started growing the first one in the flourite and it did grow very slowly. Maybe like 4 months to reach full size. Then it was all fine and dandy for a few months and the roots started to disintegrate. And then I started seeing little plantlets at the tips of the leaves. Any id would be much appreciated

It's definitely not water sprite. It never grew out, just one layer of leaves. And I can't find a good pic of antler fern.
