Not sure... I think I found the same thing in Alabama at a lake though.

There's a risk of transmitting disease to an aquarium if you move wild-caught plants to the aquarium, so most people won't do it.

If it was me, I'd do it after planting it in moist soil for a while. (ie, grow it emersed)

BTW, here's my pics. Think it's the same thing?

Looks like your plant has a wider stem, but other than that they look quite similiar.
I think yours could be mexican oak-leaf plant.. but it's a wild guess.

Could yours be Ludwigia palustris?
