Yes, just make sure that no leaves are in the water or else they will rot. I have lucky bamboo and I pulled the leaves off until they were all above the water level and I cut the stems. I put them in the gravel next to the filter and made sure that the filter was pouring all of the water onto the bamboo. You obviously don't need to do this, because you don't have to filter. For me, doing this just help the bamboo grow faster. I got 2 inch roots growing all over the stems within a week! My bamboo never grew that quickly before (root wise -- the stems and leaves were always climbing and I ended up with a 4 foot tall plant!! O.o xD). It really helps to have it in an aquarium for root growth. But, if you want a plant that grows quickly and will filter the water well, you should get rotala rotundifolia or purple cabomba. They are very easy to find and they grow extremely quickly. The purple cabomba is very soft and has gorgeous colors to it. I believe that it's a perfect addition to any betta tank. :)
