    Cant really see well, but looks like Lilaeopsis brasiliensis, or L. novae-zelandiae perhaps?

    Maybe google that and compare to what you have...

    Jou yster! EKt geweet hierdie is n goeie kopie

    Lilaeopsis brasiliensis is an ideal foreground plant which creates a beautiful lawn effect in the aquarium. It can grow to a maximum size of 10-18 cm (4-7 inches) under aquarium condition with a high light intensity, a good quality substrate and nutrient rich water. The shape of the leaf blade can be lineal or less linear with apex rounded or sharp and tapering base. It is a short-stemmed plant with light green grass-like leaves which form a short carpet in the right conditions. It is a great plant for both beginners and experienced aquarium fish keepers. It is an attractive bottom covering plant that makes an excellent ideal environment for spawning fish to lay their eggs. It also provides hiding places for shrimp or any other critters that dwell in the tank. It is the perfect plant for a bowl, small tanks and large aquariums. It is compatible with most species of community fish, but any large digging cichlids and larger herbivorous fishes should be avoided. Most plecos can also co-exist with this plant. Lilaeopsis brasiliensis (Brazilian micro sword) can propagate easily under aquarium condition with proper care.
