Anacharis question

My tank has been doing pretty well except for my little overdosing incident. My Anacharis and java moss has been growing like crazy.
How do you prune the Anacharis? can you replant the trimmings?

yup, just lop off the top and stick it into the gravel and it will root and grow. If you dont have room for it you can always sell it or trade with someone else in the classifieds forum.

Yup, they are not picky. Most of my fast growing plants like this I will snip above where the leaves start to look sickly (from less light, deficiency, etc.).

There's a reason this plant is often referred to as a weed!
