    A few ways. Are you talking about trimming leaves that you suspect are dying? Usually healthy plants get trimmed because they're growing so much.

    so These are my plants. Names of them? Are they good for a a first timer with real plants as myself? Anything I can do to help there growth? I have 4 danios, 2 neons, 2 julii corys, 2 CPO, and evidently my fiances parents put a couple ghost shrimp in there.

    The first plant looks like some sort of anubius and i have a few of them do best attached to logs or rocks and they grow very slow. I love these plants. :)
