Are the trimmings plantable?

Not that I know of, but you can easily split the bulb after it's been growing a while to get a new plant. Mine split itself, so I now have 2 plants, and could easily split it to more.

I have a 5.5 gallon aquarium would this plant get too large? I am aware plants grow all the time. So how would I go about trimming it?

No, it wouldn't get too large. I don't have a picture of mine from when it was at its largest... it died back a few months ago, for some reason, but it's coming back now. I think snails just ate it literally to the ground. I've had it about a year. It mostly stays in one spot, doesn't send out runners, centered over the bulb, and shoots leaves up to rest on the surface. I've never had to trim mine, but I imagine you could just cut it down.

This is about as big as mine got:


After dying back, it's kind of 2 plants (I'll take a picture), but still close to each other:
