Wistera roots?


Hi, this picture probably doesn't show it very well, but the wistera in the middle of my tank is just a jungly mess of roots. Is there anything i can do to remedy this? Let the plant fill out? It's quite unattractive.

That's the way the plant propagates, just trim off the little plants that form, (cut just below the roots) and replant or remove the mini plant

I just pinch the roots off.
Wisteria is a nutrient hog and pretty much grows these aerial roots to rob everything else lol.
