    Just a quick one - why shouldn't you use scissors with anubias? I always have, but perhaps I shouldn't have....!
    Great guide. Thanks

    Why would you use scissors with anubias? Just a quick pull and the leaf comes away without leaving anything to rot

    I'm interested that you say that you should vacuum sand. How do you recommend one does this, to avoid taking a lot of sand up into the gravel cleaner?

    You're welcome. I've been out of the planted tank scene for a while but just setting up a new one next week. I think I will have a read through my own guide to refresh my memory ha ha.
