Stranger plant danger

I'm not entirely sure what is happening in my little fish world, but this morning as I am feeding my fish, I notice that part of one of my fake plants looks pretty real.... I Check it out and sure enough it's a little green stalk rooted into my gravel ....

I'm worried that it may be unsafe for my fish and I would absolutely hate to lose anybody else .... However I was planning on putting in some real plants anyways ..... So if it's not a danger ... I'd really like to keep itClick image for larger version

Like it's a plastic plant that came in a plastic package?

Why not put it in a separate container for now and see what it turns into? Maybe someone could identify now, but it will only get easier to identify when more mature.

That happened to me once, I removed it and placed it in a jar, then forgot about it and then noticed it died... Never knew what it was or how it got there.

In my betta tank once a bug laid eggs, then my betta had a feast when they hatched, so no clue if a bug can transport a seed into the tank?

Live plants don't harm fish. If the plant dies and rots you may need to change some water.

If your water looks cloudy, change some water.

strange. When it gets a little bigger, maybe post pics in the "planted aquarium" section, folks there may be able to identify!
