ok guys i guess its not aquatic idk how the pet store keeps them though
They don't keep them, they sell them to uneducated consumers.
I don't know what's worse, selling land plants as aquatics, selling african cichlids without explaining what they are, or buying all this stuff without the first bit of research as to what you want to put in your tank.
Don't feel bad, its a lesson we all learned the hard way. It is a rare LFS that will give you the straight scoop. You have just learned that the place you bought this stuff from is not to be trusted. You should also learn that the LFS is a place to buy, not a place to shop.
You go in with a list of things you've researched. If you see something cool that's not on the list, you write down what it is, go on an internet forum and check it out. Sites that sell fish or plants can't be trusted either. When in doubt, wetwebmedia.com is probably the most trusted source for giviing good advice on the web.
Good luck, africans are very cool, I have a tank full of them, but no plants in it. You need to decide which you like better.
