Heres an easy possible solution that might be worth a try.

Cut back to feeding every-other day. Your fish will be fine. Whether fish eat it or not, it is still adding orgainics to the tank. ...

pinching the soft growing tip off with your finger nails. Just faster is some cases. Cut right above a pair of leaves (~2mm). New branches will form where the leaves below the cut attach to the stem.
