    Could maybe be a small crypt? (I’m no expert! ;))

    Given the dark green colour, and the appearance of fairly stiff/hard leaves, they are likely a species of Ophiopogon, commonly called Fountain Plant. There are a few species. Not truly an aquatic I believe, but some species do last well submersed, a few apparently less long.

    Spot on Byron. I eventually found it after trawling through umpteen sites and images.
    It isn't an aquatic plant but seems to be in fairly common use in aquariums.

    Thank you both
