    I would grow it with some companion plants, e.g. other plants it would live with in its natural environment. Try adding a layer of peat or something on the bottom of the tank, perhaps try some easy water plants like water hyacinth. If you have a water garden, you'll have no prob growing it most likely

    Uh, fish will likely eat it. You should probably find a different container, or at least use one of those little isolation nets for rearing fry to keep the fish away from it. Otherwise, an aquarium probably isn't a bad place to try. If you have problems with algae growing on the strands, try moving them to a container that's opaque and dark colored.

    Hi nice tips but atm I got them in a fish spawn container or what u call it. and they seem to be growing very happy there (: When they have outgrown that il place it in the tank without the container since then it will be to many to lose them all to my fishs.. I guess hehe

    Sounds like you've got it under control. Have you considered getting some Daphnia or other critters to feed both the fish and the plants?
    Good luck,

    I wonder if they would do well inside an outside filter. I think elgecko was doing that with Aldrovanda.
