Glosso - Trimming Day

Healthy Glosso creeping all over the soil. Almost zero visibility of algae including the common Green Spot/Dust Algae (GSA/GDA). Not sure if my algae eaters are doing great job in this tank or simply because of some other reasons.

I am using BorneoWild Spring Cutter 28 to speed up trimming job. Next round will try to use BorneoWild Wave Cutter. Please ignore the reflection on the glass :P

Glosso floating all over the tank. I use normal fish net to scoop out floating Glosso before performing water change.

Large water change after trimming. I always perform water change via WIWO technique which is a lot easier and less messy.
