[APD] OK to trim Anubias roots?
The beard algae that took over my tank a month ago is slowly
disappearing, and the plants are growing again. I have a couple of
anubias in there that I need to take out and bleach to get the thick
algae off their leaves. One of them is easy to remove because it was a
recent cutting. It has lots of roots but they are not very long. The
other (the plant that I too the cutting from); I tried to pull it up a
couple of weeks ago and it has a network of fine roots that spread all
thru the substrate. Will it hurt the plant if I cut most of those
roots? Seems like it would be the same as planting a cutting, except
this will have a head start because I'm not going to cut *all* the roots.
