What Plant is This?

My sister just got back from hiking and she gave me these plants that came from a river. I'm cleaning it and going to let it stay in my fish-less tank but I don't know what type of plant this is lol

Anyone know?

Looks like it might be a cousin of the Green Myriophyllum. I might be wrong about that though.

Ekk! I see little living things floating in my uncycled new aquarium! I think they might be snails because it looks like they have a tiny shell on them. My filter also has growth of green strings on it... omg do I need to buy a assassin snail to kill all of them? What do I do? O_O

Can I see a picture of them? Or an attempted picture? lol

And is the algae IN or ON your filter? If it's in, that's fine, if ON then you can just scrape it off before a WC and then suck it up with your siphon.

I have been trying to take a pic of them but my camera sucks at making the pic clear. They look like brown dots right now but up close their shell looks like a size of a football a bit. Going to try a pick one up and put it out on a cup to get a clear view of it

Ah okay, you can try the swish and rub method in either water you just took from the tank in a water change or just in conditioned water will be fine. But it's really not too big of a deal, just when it's in your tank, but then you can scrub it off.

EDIT: did you also have snails in there before or is this just something out of the blue?
