I've had it in my high-tech 46g for over a year now. The tank has been a bit in flux, but temps were typically in the 76-82F range. It took a while to get established with some shading issues, but it's good and strong and thriving now. I also placed a small amount in a 10g, low-tech, no heat tank. It has been in there for 6 months and did next to nothing (including *not* dying!). Recently, it has started spreading slightly.
Oh, and I have the Marsilea aquatica version. So, other varients might act differently.
