I've grown these in my pond before. Grows above the water with the root submerged.

do you think this can be a foreground plant in a nano tank ?

Looks like some sp. of papyrus. I don't think you'll have much luck growing that submersed.

That plant would "drown" in a few weeks if you put it under water. I hate how petco and petsmart sell plants that shouldn't be fully submerged as aquarium plants.

You could use that as a nice house plant keeping it moist or even put it in a Riparium/Terrarium/Vivarium.
