Need help identifying a plant

So I bought this plant today, and have no idea what it is called

Was wondering if someone can help me out here so I know what I can do for the plant. Thank you!

Looks like as species of Chara. It is actually a type of macrophytic algae that resemble true plants, but they don't have true roots. Can be grown planted as you have, or used as a floating mass,

Hope that helps

Yeah, It looks like seaweed, but was in with the freshwater plants. Thank you so much! That's the best response I got!!! Never had a plant like this.

Well, I saw you had no responses and was surprised as there are a few members on here who keep planted tanks. I guess they didn't spot your thread. Glad I could help.
