    looks like Ceratopteris thalictroides.

    Have a look on the tropica website to see what you think

    Many Thanks for this, I think its a little small for Ceratopteris thalictroides, looks very like it though it could be Ceratopteris siliquosa from pics on the internet, whether its the same plant I am not sure.

    Looks very nice, as long as it does not grow too big.

    I think it's a Hottonia, possibly palustris or inflata.

    Should be a really nice, well behaved plant, doesn't get massive, and easy to prune.

    I think that is spot on, really think its a Hottonia not sure which one as you say above, many thanks for this.

    Have you or anyone any experience with this, where would you put it location wise, they are still in the pots at the moment.

    Cheers
    Dave

    Foreground in a really large tank if you're prepared to trim it and replant cuttings, more midground in a small to medium tank.

    Here's an OK link about it: http://www.aquaticplantcentral.com/foru ... .php?id=42

    and here's a classic site I found while searching - check out the photos of "A modern treatment with a wrought-iron stand and driftwood plywood shadow frame. Back of aquarium is covered by bamboo matting" and other classics! http://www.aquariumdecoration.net/aquar ... tion06.php

    Best,
