Can anyone identify this plant for me?

Found this forum searching for the identity of this plant. Can someone help?

About 20 inches tall & 12 inches wide. Very dense root system. Seems to be a quick grower.

Thanks
Matthew

thanks

Ha. Just noticed my pix posted upside-down.

Thanks for the quick reply.

When I went to the store, I told them I wanted something tall for the back of the tank. They have a huge selection & all I have to do is tell them what I want (light req, size, etc) & they can pick out just what I need. When he showed me this, I got excited & bought it right then. Only problem was I forgot to ask what it was!!

EDIT- I also picked up that blue-eyed t-bar the same day. That pic is one of the few times I've seen her get out of the plant.

cool fish! Never have seen it before. Also yes that is water sprite, it grows very fast and is a great beginner/low tech plant.
