From what I've heard, they do well even in tapwater. Just roll them around in your hands a bit every time you do a water change and they should continue to grow, slowly, as long as you have them

It's all good. I have two in my freshwater tank. I pretty much take them out once a month, roll them up in a ball, and squeeze them in treated water to get all of their junk out of them. That's pretty much all I do they are super easy to care for.

Some of your fish will snack on it while all it really does is help keep your tank clean just like any other plant.

They take out nutrients from the water and that helps to prevent algae growth on your glass and such.
