^ ROFL @ losing the scissors! Ahahahahaha!
It's so weird to sit here and look at my tank and actually see the fish and the bubbles from the air stone. The fish may be a bit freaked out tho with losing all that cover. I was so scared I was gonna bring up some trapped gas from the substrate while tearing all that stuff out - I had my vac in one hand sucking up the gross debris while pulling with the other. The tank is tall and I was literally in up to my pits and both arms were 100% covered with duckweed, lol. Oh and when I pulled the sword out about 3000 snails fell off it and onto the floor. It was a huge mess.
