While boating in a lake, I saw lots of clumps of these in the water. Does anyone know what type of plant this is? It's sorta like hornwort but it has different shaped pines that the ones in my aquarium.

Deer Lake in Burnaby. There was lots of it. It's really cool to see plants in our aquariums out in the wild. There was also lily pads and cats tails.

Its just wild hornworts. I wouldn't put them in a tank, you do not know what sorts of microorganisms it may carry. They also change a bit to adapt to their changing environment.

If it is anything like its "domesticated cousin" found in retail, I would take a pass. Pet Store hornwort "sheds needles" like crazy which can really add to one's filter/tank maintenance routine.

You could give it a try if you have a spare tank or dont mind the risk. Would be a nice experiment.
