Maintaining aquarium plants info needed
Back in September 2011, I bought 2 amazon swords and an apogenaton (sp) and they took off like crazy. The Apo has produced a "baby plant" that I cit off and stuck in the gravel, the swords are overgrowing the tank, they cover almost half of the 29G tank. I would like to divide them and give some away but I have a UG filter and I'm sure the roots are pretty tightly weaved into it. I haven't noticed any runner or shoots from them, just 2 big crowns. Should I just trim the big leaves down as short as I can? Any other advice you can think of the from the pictures is welcome.
One pic is from the day I added the plants, the other 2 are from today. The white stringy things in the side pic are bubbles.
29 Gal, 5 golden platys, 5 neon tetras, 1 clown loach, 2 otos, a few snails that escaped the loach, 2 swords, 2 apo plants.
