Default emersed parva

A while back I was given one parva that proceeded to get lost in the 75 gallon tank. Now I have been given another parva. Have also started a emersed setup that consists of a 15 gallon long with eggcrate in the bottom with several levels. So far have been using a mix of soil (commercial potting mix), peat and some turface to loosen things up a bit.

The above mix may still be richer than it needs to be - it certainly could be looser I am guessing. What would be the best bet for the parva? Should I get some sand for a sand and peat mix?

Will the parva be likely to do better emersed? Am I correct to assume the emersed growth would generate runners so it could be propogated for submersed growth in the aquarium?

Thanks,
Jay Reeves
