Default Can the greatest plant minds ID this fern?

I saw this months ago and it blew me away. It looks to my eyes like plain Boston Fern,Nephrolepis exaltata,growing underwater. Its not plastic..and I see croziers as if its growing. Looks to need some Iron for the yellows..but WHAT IS IT REALLY??! Skip to 8:04 or so.

3:50 to 4:10 on the timeline. Maybe some type of filmy fern, Trichomanes? just a guess.

It appears to be Taiwan Fern (Crepidomanes auriculatum). I used to have this plant several years ago. It can be grown in low and high-tech environments with or without CO2.

Best regards,

Stuart

wow,Thank you very much Stuart,I have a thing for Pteridophytes. I have a few rare ferns in my yard (tropical and subtropical species) and that of course carried over to my Bolbitis heudelotii obsession since its THE most fern looking real fern to be grown submerged.
Now,you have me on to another.
I also saw Lucas Bretz on youtube show it in one of his tanks. I asked him and he didn't know what it was in latin name but they told him it was "mini Bolbitis".. was pretty sure it was no Bolbitis and it's not as it turns out.
His was nice..but the Steinhart video made them look like larger ferns. Nonetheless I would like to find one!
Way to go ...

Thanks Gerald on the time.. Some mistakes I can't figure!

Some googling and its actually,now an Asplenium, a huge fern family and i have a few of those now and have grown more in the past.
Here's a good quick reference.

Many plants such as this one in their native environment are near waterfalls and wet high humid areas. (some are sold as underwater and eventually die as in their native environment during the rainy season they may be submerged but have periods when they are not).

You may want to research its natural biotype to see if at times you need to take it out and put it in a humid terrarium (which I did with some of mine). But it seems others have had good experience with it?
