Tips for keeping Elatine Triandra more compact?

I have a carpet of elatine triandra in my 25 gallon tank. While it is very vigorous with its growth, it has recently been piling up on itself by about 2 inches. I have tried trimming it down and running my hands through it every week and bring up hand fulls but it seems to keep progressing towards a lower half full of roots and stems with pretty tops. Do I need to be more aggressive in trimming it? I'm wondering if I should pull it up and replant tops but I did not want to have to do that.

For reference I have regulated CO2 and dry dose EI according to the sticky. Over head is two T5HO with a daylight and a Giesemann Powerchrome Aquaflora inside sitting on my aquarium.

Thank you for reading!
