i trimmed it all back a few weeks ago. it's already growing back like crazy though. how much are you looking for? i'll try to post an updated pick to give you an idea of how much i have growing.

this is a pic of my 40 gal before i trimmed it the first time. that's a idea of how fast it can grow. that's about three or four months of growing.
