I have a bamboo rooted in my 25 gallon community tank. The leaves and main stalk extend above the tank, the roots are submerged in the tank water. I have a philodendron rooted in one of my Betta tanks, the same way. I can post pictures if you want a general idea of how it looks. The Bamboo has been in this tank for 5 months, and has grown nearly 2 feet in that time span, and keeps the water parameters in check for me.

Is that first one just sticking out the hob filter, or where? I've really wanted to do this but haven't been able to figure out how without opening the top or lowering the water level. Can I see from the top, please?

Please keep this thread on topic. The OP is asking if reptile bamboo root decor is safe for fish tanks not if lucky bamboo (the live plant) can be used.
