That looks like a happy plant, getting more co2 and stronger light above water + the other nutrients from below water ^^

Bummer, I just gave some away the other day. I'll keep you in mind if it gets out of hand.

Bacopa grows both under water and at the surface. Once it reaches the surface it does not grow quite so much under water. Keep on trimming it back to under the water. I have B. caroliniana all over the place- it sprouted up and over one tank and into the next.

I love bacopa! Here in FL we have Lemon Bacopa that grows in all the ditches and it grow extremely fast even in poor conditions. It's always a great plant. Mine all got eaten by a pesky cray a few months back but i've been meaning to get some more. Maybe it will flower soon?
