PetSmart is selling this as Java Fern and I, of course, bought it primarily because I knew I wouldn't get any snails from it. Apparently (or is it obviously) it is not. I have had it in the tank for about a year and it is doing better than any other plant I have had. Lots of nice new growth and my new lights aren't even here yet. Any idea what this is?

Looks like African Water Fern (Bolbitis Heudelotii). Treat it the same as Java Fern & it should thrive.

Just got back from Petsmart - this is now labeled as Aqua Fern. Java fern is labled as Tropical Fern and the latin name was correct on the Top Fin plants.
