To Cut, or Not to Cut. Tis the Question..

I think its gone out of control! I even cut off the c02.

Im thinking about cutting them, 1 is flowering so it will die off pretty soon and grow back in a couple of months(its a Rainy season plant)

What do you all think?

Depends on what styled tank you want yours I be. I'd let it grow a bit more because I always wanted a "forest" type tank

If you like the look keep it if not cut it but if it is blocking so much light it is affecting plants below it I'd at least cut some of it back.

Agreed with river cats, but I do like that forest look.
You could put anubias at the bottom!

Darn, I wish I lived close by... I would let what you cut be my first live plant in my 20H planted tank that I will be starting really soon
