I have too much hornwort

I bought 3 bunches of hornwort recently and it has taken over my tank. The stems are SO long. The stems at the bottom are starting to turn brown and the leaves/needles? are starting to fall off because I guess all the other stems are blocking the light. What should I do? Should I prune a whole bunch and just throw it out. I just don't know what to do with so much hornwort. I have an extra 10g with a hood (15W bulb) Can I fill this up and float the cuttings that I cut in there or plant them.

Don't be afraid to trim it and toss out the excess, or maybe offer some to hobbyists starting out -- small bits of stem will grow and you'll quickly have more than you need again Throw out the dying bits -- new growth will come faster than it recovers.

If you need advice on packaging for shipping, just let me know. I would take some off your hands but my angels seem to think they are tasty.

Just start chopping off pieces and sell it to your lfs. That's what I do- got $20 store credit last time. I grow hornwort in ponds in my backyard.
