Can anyone ID this moss?

Found it by a swamp emerged and submerged it in a 10g with no light. It looked like it died but then it's alive. I now have a 18w T8 on it to see what happens with light.

Other places say fissiden moss, but after it grows for a while we'll be able to tell better.

Most likely Willow if it lives submergent. It real common to the Central US, if its an aquatic moss at all.
