Anyone know what plant this is?

I don't have a pic... I was at the lfs just to pick something up quickly and I noticed it in a tank. I didn't go and see it up close so my description might not be totally accurate. It was in a pot and had quite a few leaves, I think they were Java Fern like but the edges seemed wavy. The stems the leaves were on weren't all that long. Either one side or the whole thing had a reddish/purple hue to it. At the moment I didn't think to ask for its name so if anyone knows I'd be great 'cause I want to do some research before buying it. I know this is hard but if someone gets it they'll get a cookie

If it wasn't the ever popular Plasticus artificiallias, maybe it was Cryptocoryne Wendtii?

jhoetzl and Thanks... I think I'll have to send you both some cookies 'cause I'm pretty sure that's what it was. And thanks for the link too, it's a great site.
