    For a bit of fun i will start of by giving a small shot of a plant (it has to be aquatic - or at least survive in aquatic conditions) then you have to guess what it is, whoever gets it right gets to go next :D Make it as easy or hard as you like and it is up to you whether you give any clues. ;) Try to provide the clearest picture you can.

    so here we go

    Can't see it that well either, but is it 'Pelia' (Monosolenium tenerum) or 'Mini Pelia'?

    I've got two, but both a little dodgy photos as they've been cropped right down.

    Bonus points for the correct genus and species names of both! :lol:

    Marsilea drummondii

    Bottom one looks like a sword of some kind.

    Echinodorus 'Oriental' maybe it's gotta be an aquaspot species?

    It's a Marsilea but not that one!

    The other isn't an Echinodorus.

    The Marsilea is M.crenata. It's very close to M.hirsuta in appearance but slightly different, allegedly!

    Anyone got any ideas on the second yet? It's 2" tall in that picture.
