I spy at least one non aquatic plant... I believe they refer to it as a 'white ribbon' or 'ribbon' plant....you'll need to get that out before it rots and fouls the water.

Which one is it? I bought them all from petco in a watered tank.

Yea, he didn't know what he was talking about. Honestly, never trust the workers when it comes to plants unless you personally know them. A good bit of people have fallen for ribbon plants in their tank at some point (myself included).

Yeah the ribbons aren't meant to be fully aquatic, but it can be misleading how they are shown in stores . I really love Wisteria, Wendtii, Java fern, and Anubias Nana for low tech tanks . I will say I thought my LED would ruin my 10 gallon growth, but mine are growing very well so far.
