Cabomba?

Recently I put a bunch of cabomba in my 30 gallon. It's doing really well. It's doubled in size. I noticed one of the stems starting to get what looks like roots halfway up the stem and starting to lean towards the bottom. Is that indeed what they are and can I cut it and replant it elsewhere?

Those are just aerial roots. They are a normal thing that stem plants will do. You can trim the plant at any time a replant, roots or not.
