My Plant Questions!

Okay, so I have two questions for you guys. First of all, how do I get more of this plant (pic below). Can I pull off a stalk or two with roots attached and just re-plant them? Or do they have seeds? I don't know the species of the plant, but if needed I will look it up! (the water level is a little low right now, I will fill it up in a few)

And also I got these two plants from a spring water river. How can I make it safe to put with my fish? And if it's no safe for my fish, I there anything special I'll have to do to keep them alive (in a separate container)?

Swords will reproduce with runners. I wouldn't recommend splitting the plant.

Plants are so expensive nowadays I have a lot of different swords and would love to know how to split them.

they reproduce by sending off shoots underneath the gravel. when the shoots (runner) stops, it will start to grow roots and grow leaves. when the new plant has nice roots and some decent sized leaves, you can trim off the runner and replant it somewhere else. i also would not recommend splitting them, i did that and they all died.
