Depending on where you live, it should be dormant right now. Though if it came from tissue culture, I'd keep it indoors on a sunny windowsill if you're currently experiencing winter weather.

No need to boil IME. Just watch for ammonia spikes if you're setting up a new tank and do 50% water changes to bring them down when necessary.

Monte carlo grows larger leaves in high light with CO2 injection while growing smaller leaves in low tech setups. I prefer monte carlo over HC since it requires less maintenance.

Nah. Don't cut them back. Just let them grow new leaves. Don't be surprised if the old leaves melt though.

From that pic you posted, it looks like the rhizome is growing up out of the substrate.

Nice experiment. To be honest, I've only had luck killing spirogyra using Algaefix. It shrugged off H2O2 and Excel and I'm afraid of killing my mosses with bleach.

A plastic fork might float. You can use a bamboo skewer instead and stick it into the substrate to hold down a slice of zucchini.

+1 to Marsilea quadrifolia.

It takes a bit of time to get established in low tech tanks but it eventually becomes invasive, often growing under the shade of other plants and under driftwood.
