It's a Dracaena species. Unfortunately it's a non-aquatic/terrestrial plant. It will not do well if completely submerged.

+1 on Dracaena.

Unfortunately, it is not an aquatic plant and should not have even been sold to you in the first place

You can make it a very nice potted plant, though.

Use it as a riparium or stick it in the hang-on back (HOB) filter.
