How much light do you have? It grows upright just fine in my 10 gallon with 45 watts over it. One thing that helps plants grow more upright is trimming of near the bottom, the sideshoots tend to grow more vertically (thanks Gomer). Another thing you might want to try is increasing PO4 or traces. I would try upping the PO4 first, many of us are keeping ours at 1.5-2ppm, some even more without any problems. I personally dose 3ppm a week in my 10 gallon, but I also go through NO3 like made so you have to watch those levels more closely. You might also want to try a plant like stargrass. HTH:)
