    Anyway... sorry to say so but what I see around 0:12 makes me wonder if it's not some variety of ficus. The potted plant is a Dracaena braunii or lucky bamboo. That can live partially aquatic for a long time but needs to have leaf above the water. So the second isn't a suitable plant, the first might not be.

    Problem is, some aquatic plants suppliers also sell to the repto crowd. Shops are sometimes to careless or stupid to distinguish between aquarium and terrarium plants. A terrarium plant can live submerged for some time but will eventually go mushy and start to rot which fouls up your water.
    Funny, because both of those plants came in the same pot from Petco (when I first started the hobby--haven't bought much from them since). I'll take the dracaena out. Do I basically take care of it like typical land plants? I recently planted the second one in the substrate and it seems to be doing a bit better. I'll keep a close eye on it. Thanks for the help.

    Meanwhile, here is my updated tank:

    The first I'm unsure about. The second, yes a typical land plant. Likes a good drink but don't drown it. I've seen bigger ones in betta tanks where the leafs could grow out of the water and they were fine with that.
