If this is a 48-inch T8 tube with around 6500K, then Pennywort should be fine floating. Once that occurs (give it time, as I said), planting a few stems in the substrate should allow it to adjust, if you want it (or some of it) planted. It is fine left floating, but thin it out once it starts massing up, keeping the stems separate on the surface.
Are you using any liquid fertilizer (this hasn't been mentioned)? Being a fast grower, it naturally will need food. A comprehensive liquid is sufficient, once or perhaps twice a week. Seachem's Flourish comprehensive Supplement
is what I use, it is highly concentrated.
