I've gotten some BBA on my plants and finally
removed everything, after 2 weeks, my jungle val
isn't lush green as before? It's a pinkish orange with
some dark brown leaves, so I decided to give it its
first trim. I cut it like 2/3s down, is that the correct
way to trim it? How should I make the color green
again, or should I just wait until they grow back?

We need more information: what is your lighting like? CO2 injection? Fertilizers (how much, how often...)?

A picture would be helpful too.

As for trimming the leaves, I find it better to cut the leaves at the base, rather than 2/3 down as you have. The leaf will not grow back from the cut point anyway.
