Borneo Fern question

Folks,
LFS told me Borneo Fern would be fine with my 2x65 watt lighting. Googled Borneo fern and it says it is not a true aquatic plant. Anybody have any info into this deep green classic looking forest fern? The root is very stiff brown. Will it survive submerged?
Thanks

Based on what I've seen it won't last long submerged. It's not truly aquatic.
