You can cut it like any stem plant and replant the top. It branches easily, sometimes even with the top growing tip intact. Still I have seen others cut very low near the soild. In time this i will produce a big bush having a common root point. It takes a little bit longer to propagate in this fashion but makes for a nice result.

What compound do you use for PO? KH2PO4? If so, in a 240 litres aquarium at least 1g KH2PO4 per week. 1g is about 2mg/L PO4.

I've gotta tell you something.

I know that the goldfish is going to be in every picture of your tank.

But every single time I see a new shot of your tank, it's surprising, like the first time you posted.

Just have never seen a fish like that in a tank like yours.

But it works for you, brings a unique element into the tank, that is for sure.

Thanks for your impression ,
The last one i keep and you can see on last picture is more than 20 cm long now , that is not always easy but by feeding him 2 Times by day that make him cool and he let the plant safe (or quite) the only perpetual problèm is that he vaccum ground often all day long and modify "terraforming" , so 2 Times by month i push , plan , and move back Gravel to make the thick i want in the tank .

And you are right i have never found advice on the web for keeping goldfish in planted tank cause surely noone do that
