Bamboo isn't an aquatic plant because the leaves die once they are submerged. I don't suggest having bamboo in tanks because of the leaves, but the stalk would be fine. You have to tear off any leaves that are under the water and let the rest of the bamboo stick out of the water and tank. If you want a plant that can be complete submerged in a tank look at the plant care thread. :)
