This plant was in a small shallow section of a muddy pond. It is a runner. Location is Long Island, NY.

Looks like some kind of Myriophyllum (aka. watermilfoil or parrotfeather), but I couldn't tell you the precise species.

Could be M. alterniflorum which is native to parts of NY and Long Island.

Looks like Myrio. aquaticum, the Brazilian parrotfeather (non-native).

Thanks, it is some kind of parrotfeather. I saw a park ranger and he told me it is an invasive plant. He actually told me ever plant in the pond is invasive. It grows very nice in the aquarium. The roots are very thick and prevent the current from blowing it. I have it on a piece of wood to keep parts oUT of water. Other then sitting on top of the wood it is free floating.
