Sounds like algae to me. I can't think of an aquatic plant that
looks like wheat, and when ever someone tells me about an
unidentified plant purchased at a pet store, my first thought is
"terrestial plant". I'd look through some house plant books and
see if you can find your plant.

Tropica and Dupla are two different companies. Tropica produces
aquarium plants in Denmark, Dupla produces equipment and supplies
for aquariums (planted and marine) in Germany.
