Can we see a picture? That might actually be a terrestrial plant being sold as aquatic.

Interesting pictures, especially the octopus! Is that you doing scuba?

Anyway, as for the plant, I'm not an expert in flora but it does look like a house plant.. Perhaps someone else here can chime in on that one.

Yay for Rivercats to the rescue.. The whole size of a football thing in the description threw me off. Thought the OP was describing an Aglaonema species of some sort, similar to http://davesgarden.com/guides/pf/showimage/48814/

I've only seen an anubias with a flower once. It's a unique sight.

I have several different types of anubia's and the Nana's seem to be the ones that flower the most and with some regularity.
