Hello!

I have this lovely long plant which is way way too long for my fluval Roma 125! With some Reaching metre long in length which I love the way it bends over and back down towards the substrate but I would like to trim some and allow a little more light into the aquarium is there a special way to trim this plant or is pulling it from the substrate the best way to trim it? It's just doing this kind of leaves a bare spot rather than trimming a few from all over
Any advice on cutting this would be appreciated!

Ah right so instead of pulling it out, just kind of snap the long strands off the base? Good idea! I always struggled to remove the piece as it took half the tank along with it
Thanks for the advice!
