It is neither. It is the genus Lagenandra, which is closely related to Cryptocoryne. You can see pictures of Lagenandra species and find an article about one of them on the crypt pages by Jan Bastmeijer:

Kasselmann discusses some Lagenandra species her book, Aquarium Plants.

As one can see the information is lacking at best I'm not sure whether I would like this plant as yet. Without information it's hard to make informed choices. So I gues I'll have to leave this out for now.

Thanks for the site information, I have already been to those.:D

On that website HeyPK posted it says it's not suited to the aquarium, just emersed culture. Is that what you're looking at doing?

I'm surprised this hasn't been added to the Plantfinder yet. At one point Laganadra meboldii 'pink' was floating around the hobby and in the swap and shop. It grows fine in submersed culture, unfortunately I don't have much more info to give you myself.....eventually someone who's had alot more experience with it than me will be able to give you a better answer :)

Kasselmann says that it can be grown submersed, but growth is slow. Actually, so does the Baench Atlas.
