    Don’t recognize the plant, but I’d definitely get it out of that rock wool - it’s not great for your fish as the fibers irritate their gills. Some of the more experienced plant guys should pitch in shortly.

    Im not plant expert either but for some reason it looks like might not be aquatic... maybe im wrong.. lets wait for the plant experts :)

    Agree with @BadgerBadger about that wool, if the fish nibble on that like when foraging for food that might fall on top, it can kill them
    I lost 3 clown loaches couple years ago for nibbling on that

    Take it out of the rock wool as the others suggested. I don’t know, plant it in the substrate and see how it does. If it starts to rot, take it out before it fouls the water too much

    I removed the rock wool already after the other member advised. Wasnt sure if the plant cpuld affect anything if its not meant to in there. I think you right though... ill leave and monitor. I like the leaf
