I ended up answering my own question. I was more worried about the physical difficulty of replanting them, since their roots tend to be small and they like to get pulled out of my pool filter sand with no effort at all. I was able to consolidate all of them into the center of my tank by splitting up the chains. For anybody who finds this later, I found that planting the biggest single plant in any given chain first and then weighing down the strand with a small rock helped to keep them in place while the rest of the runners got pushed down into the sand. Took forever since there must have been 50 individual little plants, but definitely worth it. I'll post pictures when the tank has cleared. Thanks for the help though.
