So 5 feet off my back yard is a pond and it the back corner of my yard I found clumps of stems. Any idea what they may be or if they are aquatic? I live around Chicago if that helps any.

I dug a couple rooted stems out and re-planted them in a planter my wife waters regularly so I can keep a closer eye on them.

Are they just weeds? Do you think it's safe to put in my tank to see what happens?

Looks like mint. Not aquatic, just likes damp ground. Spreads like crazy, so don't plant it in the ground unless you want it all over. That stuff makes runners that can even go under sidewalks and pop out on the other side!
