This is something of a guess, as I've never seen this plant "live" in stores to my knowledge, but it looks like Brazilian milfoil, Myriophyllum aqiaticum. If this is correct, then it is a stem plant that requires good lighting (on the bright side), although Peter Hiscock mentions that in strong light the plant may produce thick leaves above the surface. It does well in softer water, but tolerates slightly basic (pH 7.5) water. It is said to require regular fertilization (liquid).

Being a stem plant, you can stick the ends of the stems in the gravel to hold it down. Keep the stems aprat a bit to allow light to reach the lower portions in order to avoid leaf loss.
