Maintaining a Slope

I want to create the sloping triangular affect in my tank using plants. The only problem is that how do you mantain it. This is what Im talking about:



1-Petite Nana
2-Brazilian Pennywort
3-Rotala Rotundifolia
4-Sunset Hygro
5-Primrose(Ludwigia repens)
6-Crypt Wendtii
7-Java Moss
8-Microsword

That slope is what I want to keep but is there a special way to prune and trim or should I just keep on top of trimming when needed? Is there a certain order the plants are in or is that good enough?

Thanks,
James

Keep up with the trim and it shouldn't be much problem, I would probably try and put the fast growers in the back.

FUNction over form
