180 Gal pre and post trimming example

These are just iphone pics:







I will trim the other two hills in 1-2 weeks. and sell off the weeds. Recovery is fairly good, in a week or so, the new growth will appear and form a nice tight low carpet. 3 weeks later, the carpet will be nice ans fully formed again, but not nearly as weedy and over grown at the pre trim example.

Regards,
Tom Barr

In terms of technique, is there a reason why you leave a portion seemingly completely untouched, if so, do you alternate sides?

Could not sell it all at once, this way I have more later, also, you do not want to remove most of the plant biomass at once, the tank is very weak if you do that.
