Is Heartleaf Philodendron ok to use in tank

Hi,

I recently saw a youtube video of someone that had a betta barracks setup and each container had a piece of "heartleaf philidendron" in it.

Is it ok to use this plant in betta containers and or fry and grow out tanks. It lives nicely in water.

No it's not truelly aquatic. If it has it's leaves above water it's fine.

Lucky bamboo will die after a few months submerged.
