It looks like watercress. I've grown in in an aquarium before. It likes cool water. For me, it grew a bit taller than I usually see it in nature. It should be fine with your danios if you give it what it needs. It often grows emersed.

Does this live in the Midwest? I was thinking of local collecting plants

It has a huge range. I think it's from Europe and Asia, but has been established all over the USA and Canada as well.

No. But, I used to live in PA. And, when I lived there, I had a native planted 75 gallon with mudminnows and blue spotted sunfish. Those mudminnows where my first native fish, and I loved them.

I've found them in ponds that reach tropical temperatures in summer. But, I don't know how they would do in those temps year round. I kept mine without heaters.
