What is this plant?

Found it at a local lake, I live in Florida. It was growing in clumps, and either it was growing in clumps of algae or the algae grew on it extensively. I placed it in a 3 gallon tank for a few weeks before introducing it to my tank, just to make sure it didn't have parasites or anything on it. It has a pretty nice root system on it, but it seems to do fine either floating or wedged into driftwood. I've scoured the internet but I can't find anything on it. Sorry that they're sideways, took them on my phone and din't realive they'd flip.

Could be a few different things... If there's more, send me some and I can attempt to ID it..

If I had to venture a guess, I'd say its Ruppia Maritima...

Would you mind? I can mail you some, plus others from the lake that I have yet to identify. I'm pretty sure one of the plants in there is a bacopa of some kind, but I could easily be wrong haha.
