American waterweed (Elodea) is what many people commonly think of as “that aquarium plant.” It is also known by several other common names such as Canadian waterweed, common elodea, or anacharis. The use of these names causes it to be confused with the similar-looking nonnative plants like Brazilian elodea or hydrilla.
