Turtle grass mess

I bought a couple of LR with Turtle Grass a month or so ago and it's just creating such a mess in my DT. I pretty much assumed that the grass will keep making this mess as shown in the photos and getting in everything and everywhere. The LR its on is nice and I plan to save at least that. Is there anything I can do to lessen the mess? Perhaps cut it down a bit? Does it seed other LR so I may get some new growth or should I just pull it out and toss it? Anyone have experience with this?

Cheers

W.

I threw out that turtle weed. On the plus side I picked out of it about 30 green slugs! I placed them in the DT.
