Tools to Trim, Snip etc. for plant maintence
As a raw beginner with a 55 gallon tank, I am starting to wonder how on earth should I trim and get rid of nasty, dead leaves that are rotting on the bottom of my tank. Everything was going so well, and then bam--algae and dying plants what to do??
I have changed the filters and added a UV Pump that has helped clear the water. I also have a Python, but I must be using it incorrectly since it takes forever to do a water change.
I have also scrubbed the sides to get rid of the algae and I have been doing water changes. A few days ago I did a massive water change and everyone seemed ok.
So one of my main questions is how to clean plants leaves that have algae on them.
But since the tank is 21" deep, I need some type of tools to pick up dead leaves, brush off detritus, and clip off damaged leaves.
I have looked at the ADA tools and while they are beautiful they are also pricey.
Anyone come up with less expensive alternatives?
Thanks so much for sharing!!
