pennywort from pot to tank?

Hi all,

Man, I'm getting all excited about putting plants in my 20gal. There's a craigslist pond owner that is selling his/her pond plants cheap near me, and I'm going to see if the plant is in good shape and safe for my aquarium.. tonight! If it's suitable, I'm going to transferring a pennywort plant from a pond pot to the tank. It has about 20 leaves. Any advice on how to do this?

Also, how long should I keep the pennywort in the 1:20 bleach dip? It looks more fragile than any other plants I've dipped before.

One more thing, any tips on goldfish vs. pennywort? (My little goldfish in the 20gal is probably only 1 inch in size. 1.5 with tail. I feel it would be safe.)

I can tell you that you'll need to fertilize your pennywort and it will need sunlight. Mine in the basement have melted 75% over the winter. In the summer though they will grow 8 fold in the pond.
