I don't even think its aquatic...

Can anyone identify these plants, and can you tell me if they're aquatic or not? If they are not, Petco is definitely going to hear about this one - and at a store grand opening! TIA

The second is not aquatic, the first probably isn't either but I am not completely sure.

The first one looks like a healthy acorus calamus

Of the chain stores in the area, it seems like it's the best. I definitely like the new Petco design vs. the old. Either way, it's just nice to have a "Big" pet store on this side of town now. However, if your goal is to go where the best fish are, it wouldn't be my first choice. I would for sure go to Just Pets or even Animal Adventures.

If that first plant is edged with white, then my vote is for non aquatic.

That is also a non aquatic fern...the fact that it is sold as aqua fern makes it confusing. It is actually a splash zone plant.

So, basically I bought some plants that exist in an emersed living situation, and will not survive completely submerged (the Acorus is f/ marsh lands, and splash zone says to me "not completely underwater")

Please correct me if I am wrong...
