Water Hyacinth?

Anyone use it in their aquariums? It seems like a common pond plant. I have a few open top aquariums that this could work well with.

They could work but they get really wide and really tall.....so keep that in mind.

Also there roots get like, 3 feet long or something absurd like that.
