Fish Tank Plant Taking a cutting?

Options
Maybe a strange request for this part of the forum I have a living plant in my fish tank does anyone know how to take a cutting from that. I don't suppose compost will be any use ;)

    Many, aquatic plants send out runners, which root into adjoining gravel, e.g. the sword or especially the vallis plants. Other plants that have long stems e.g. elodea - just snip a piece off, and wedge in-between the gravel.
    Compost - no, the waste matter in the tank, will provide 'soil' between the gravel. But if you need to - you can get aquatic sand, and pond soil.
