stem plant Id needed for ROAK


I have this plant, got it for super cheap at Neptune, its grown like crazy!
I have so much of it!
I even have a trimming I threw in my bettas tank that has like little to no light besides my room light and its still doing well!

I'd like to ROAK some of it, or trade some of it for other plants, but I can't reacall what it is.

Sorry the one tank looks a bit cloudy, I just moved my drift wood back into place as I bumped it out of place while attaching moss.



The bit I have growing in the betta tank with no additives





I am thinking it might be Water Sprite, Ceratopteris thalictroides but I am unsure

Water Sprite. Most ideal plant to have floating in a tank if you are breeding livebearers...the babies will always hide in it.

Nope, Ill never do livebearers again unless I need them for feeders. The plant seems to be doing very well rooted down in the substrate.. I have lets see, 5 new plant trimmings from it in 3 weeks?

Used to have a lot of those when I bred swords and other live bearers. Plant does well either rooted or floating. Very good to feed to herbivorous fish as well.
