Need Help with Identifying Plant

I was given these two plants the other day at the LPS, they're new. I was wondering if anyone could pin point what they are? For some reason I am not feeling they are true aquatic but I want to make sure. I have a friend who could use them if they are not true aquatic.

Your plants are golden ribbon and they are not aquatic... they will rot over time :(

They are indeed ribbon plants are often sold in the trade as aquatic plants but really aren't and they will rot over time

No one got the chance to eat them, while I was waiting I did some search myself and it's either Golden Ribbon or Dragon Plant, both from the same family. It's now planted in soil, up high since it's quite toxic to animals :)

Mine:


Dragon plant:


Golden Ribbon:

Totally unrelated, but I just wanted to say: your pleco reminds me of a plesiosaur in that particular picture.

Hahaha, I kind of like the name Jaws for a Pleco. Though, being into the cryptids and having a fair bit of Scotch in me (ancestry, not the drink), I can't discourage on the name Nessie...
