Hi,

Newbie question, but is there need to trim floating plants root to shorter or just taking off excess plants altogether?

Plants include;
Salvinia Auriculata
Limnobium Laevigatum
Spirodela polyrhiza

Ah, here is the pic of your tank. Dismiss the welcome thread where I asked for one. Great hiding place for the rasboras.
Thanks 馃憤馃徎 Yeah, it's a jungle and maybe even too good of a hiding place for the chili's.. Habe to really look for them to see them. But I like it. It's nice to sit in front of the tank and find all of them 馃槉

I would think that a heavily planted tank like yours produces its fair share of mulm over time. There is even an interesting discussion about mulm and humic substances in aquaria right on this forum from 2005. Somebody happened to have dug it out after all these years, and it is an interesting read. I don't think extra mulm is needed.Do we need more humics in our aquariums?

You don't have to trim them but you can. My tetras and guppies (including babies) like to nibble on them -- so you might find them an additional source of food.
