Appears to be some Crinum species.

Here are some extracts from Wikipedia link on Crinum: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Crinum

Crinum is a genus of about 180 species of lily-like perennial plants that have large showy flowers on leafless stems, and develop from bulbs. They are found along the sides of streams and lakes in tropical and subtropical areas worldwide, including South Africa. In addition, swamp lilies are members of this genus which are cultivated for their attractive flowers like ornamental plants.

Several species are used on aquariums.

Crinum leaves are basal, typically long and strap-shaped, with colors ranging from light green to green.
