I pulled a bit of it out of the creek behind my house. It sort of looks like baby tears but I know they're not from around here (Central NJ). I have it QT'd in a bucket. Not sure if I'll even use it. That bright green bunch in the middle of the pic is what it naturally looks like by the bank and then there's a close up pic. Thanks for any help.

Oldfishlady helped me out with ident. It's water starwort. It's very pretty. I guess we have it because ducks eat it. We have lots of mallards out back.

Looks like a nice plant for a Betta tank.
