The sample in the pics is a little dried out (had charge my cam battery).

This stuff grows well, floats at the top. It has no roots, runners or shoots.

What is it?

This plant is commonly called "hornwort" though that name may also refer to some other types of plants also. the latin name is Ceratophylum demersum and there is a good description at the wiki site: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ceratophyllum_demersum

hope this helps!
Jim
