I think your best bet is Hygrophila corymbosa. It could be purned to look
like a miniature tree. It would tend to grow out of the water but could be
pruned back. It has a sufficiently sturdy stem to be tree-like. It may
try to keep growing lower branches, but these could be nipped off.
Hygrophila difformis would also behave the same way.
