Looks like Mondo Grass probably, which is not truly aquatic.

You can keep it while it's green, but once it starts to deteriorate pull it out.

Agree. Interestingly, although a terrestrial plant, this Mondo Grass or Fountain Plant (Ophiopogon japonicus to give it the scientific name) does sometimes do quite well submersed, for a year or more. Just keep an eye on it.

Did you want the rear plants ID too? They are aquatic.
