Very nice. I would trim some and fill in the bottom. This plant aslo does well in low light and as a floater. So should work fine in other tanks too.

boy was it a job but i cleaned out and seperated alot of the plant bunches

this is the top of the tank before i started cleaning it out

as you can see how much was growing out of the water.

i seperated all the litle plantlets and took them out of the tank till all i had left was the original plant

then i did a 100 percent water change since i havent done a water change in about a month (dont worry nothings living in it except plants no fish) and my mom has been feeding the tank large amounts of fish food why i have no idea she just says "just in case" in case what? fish start growing from the gravel?

and here it is now after i cleaned it up and anchored the best plants in the rocks

Your mom has the right idea about the fish food. It breaks down and feeds the plants.
