Question Plant Identification - Hornwort Variety or???

i everyone,

A month or so ago I bought this plant for my shrimp tank, at the time thinking it was hornwort. It goes grow fast and my RCS love it, but as I look at other pictures of hornwort and read about how it behaves, Iím starting to question if it might be a different plant.

The leaves/stem structure look different than anything I can find online, and it is dropping these long root feelers that doesnít seem consistent with hornwort.

Am I wrong? Iím happy with the plant, it would just be great to know what Iím growing!

Hi,

it doesn't look like Hornwort to me. Hornwort does not develop any roots. I would guess it's a Naja species. Maybe najas indica.

Please excuse my spelling and grammar mistakes... English is not my native language.
Here are some videos that I made with nice underwater-footage of my fishies:
