This is not the fern that I was thinking of earlier.  My best guess 
from the pics would be that it's a member of the Selaginella genus 
that Tsuh Yang mentioned.  I think they are sometimes called Peacock 
ferns (they're not true ferns, though).  The few species I know of 
are all terrestrial.  Does your plant seem to be doing well 
underwater?  It looks pretty good in the pic.
