Looks like it's probably C. crispatula var. flaccidifolia. C. spiralis is a wider leaved plant. Note that the name C. spiralis is _frequently_ misapplied to flaccidifolia.

My emerged growth spiralis looks the same as what you have pictured.
Mine is from Florida Aquatic, will attempt to take photos if I can remember to do so tonight for a better evaluation side by side.

Either way they seem very happy!
