Freshwater floating plant for Betta

Got a new floating plant for my Betta's 6 g tank today - maybe you can tell me what it is?



Do you think I should quarantine the plant? I have rinsed them all off in warmish water and now have them sitting in a bucket of tank water.

Do you think I can just put the plants in right away, or should I wait?

that pic is somewhat small so I cant really tell, but I would quarantine in not-treated tap water for atleast a couple days before adding it to the tank. Tap water tends to kill anything that could adversly effect a fish.
I've had columnaris travel in on plants before so I'll always suggest to QT plants

Thanks Aemaki!

I quarantined the plants in untreated tap water for 3 days and added them in after my water change yesterday. My betta loves them!

Did you figure out what type of plant it is? So hard to tell (for me) with that small of picture.

Almost looks like tiny clippings of water sprite?

Aemaki, lots of the aquatic forums I have been posting on tell me the plant is most likely oak leaf water sprite. So, I am going to assume that's what it is. LoL
