Limnophila is pretty fast growing. In my opinion, it would be easier and better if you simply topped the plant, replanted the tops, and threw away the ratty, algae-ridden remainder. Spot treating...

The brown portions will probably end up dying, isonychia. Eventually, they will rot and be broken down. The Monte Carlo really doesn't put out an enormous amount of roots, so I wouldn't be too...
