I do not have Marsilea crenata in my tank. But I will give you some infos
founded in a book (Bernd Greger, Pflanzen im Süßwasseraquarium).
1. Water: soft up to hard, temp. 18-25 °C
2. Light: medium lighting with flourescent tubes
3. Ground: coarse-grained sand
4. Fertilizer: frequently pellets (full fertilizer) under the roofs
5. CO2: recommanded up to 20 mg/l

In case of fertilizer defizit, leaves get black and the plant doesn't grow.

Good luck with your marsilea and regards, Klaus.
