Can I trim my amazon sword roots?...
Or does this do damage to them. I'm getting some new plants in a few days and want to do some rearranging. I want to move my sword to another location in tank and I'm sure the roots will be pretty extensive. Would just like to trim the roots to be able to replant it easier.
Trimming when moving is fine. I'm afraid I am quite reckless, I just use my fingers and gently pull at the roots a few at a time to remove the non-white (= dead) roots, and break a few of the white in the process.

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]
