great. . .new question. I was reading a trimming thread over on APC and it said you can cut the stems if they grow fast 3-4 nodes above the substrate to get it shaped well. I cut my rotala once halfway back and it took it 1 month to start growing back. Does the standard they meant only stand for high tech tanks. Here's the link. .http://www.aquaticplantcentral.com/forumapc/showthread.php?t=57960&page=3

I'd be afraid of killing off my rotala. Any one have any experience of doing this?
