    Looks like either an asplenium sp. Or microsorum sp. Any info on it other than where you purchased it?

    How are you keeping it now? If it's on a windowsill or under lights and it is suffering, it may need humidity. Some ferns struggle of they don't get proper humidity levels.

    If it's in a Viv, it could be acclimating. Many ferns will die off in a Viv before recovering and starting to grow.

    What is the plant doing? Yellowing? Rotting?

    Your tank maybe to bright for it. Try lowering or filtering your light spectrum and raise your humidity level up to 85% for a couple of weeks without getting the soil too wet.

    Only problem is if it inside together with a frog that needs lower humidity levels
