What is this plant??

Hi

New to the forum and planted aquariums we got three of these little buncles from our local pet store and are not sure what they are... All they said was it was a foreground plant that our goldfish won't eat... We will soon find out about the gold fish!! but I would like to know what the plant is called... Does anyone know??

Thanks!

Hmmmm.... I had the feeling the pet store kid was an idiot... But they are only about 1.5 inches tall so we shall see! If the Goldie's don't eat it and they grow taller ill have to move them back... Good thing I have a lot of room for plants any suggestions for foreground/ground over plants that are ok with goldfish??

Hmm. Its not so much about the plant being eaten by goldfish but about the temperature. As far as I know most of foreground plants needs higher temperature. You can try dwarf hair grass but I am not so sure.

I think you're mistaken.

BTW, no plants are safe with goldfish....

Is that two types of plants mixed together? It looks like there are two distinct leaf shapes. One does look like B. caroliniana.
