    Forget it, it is an Oxalis or suring in Afrikaans. It cannot be grown submerged and it is belongs in your garden. It has a bulb which needs good drainage. Most probably it is the common yellow suring, Oxalis pes-caprae.

    What you are actually looking for is the aquatic Marsilea which has the same leaf shape. Do a search on APSA to find some or else put out a general inquiry.

    That reed like thing in your aquarium is also not aquatic, that is a typical con job sold as an aquatic plant but belongs in a pot.....

    Kind regards,

    Dirk

    The first is a non-aquatic moss from nature somewhere.

    The second is Bacopa monnieri which is a cold water plant. Grows ok, but will crash in a tropical aquarium....
