Hi all, can anyone tell me what this plant is called? Not the java ferns, the ones in front, my friend gave them to me but he can't remember what they are!

It looks like some type of cryptocoryne. Possibly beckettii. That's my best guess.

Thanks for the help everyone, i was thinking it looked a bit like an amazon sword but cryptocoryne looks spot on! never had a planted tank before so sometimes it feels like i'm running before i can walk!

Definetely Cryptocoryne. Probably becketti, petchi or wendti "Green" - they could be pretty variable. Amazon swords are a lot bigger and don't have red leaf bases.
