Trimming Plants Without Frogs Escaping
I have two tanks and one I've let get very overgrown by a vining plant. The overgrowth is on the background so it's not a super big deal but I'd like to trim some of it out because it really is getting out of hand. In this tank I have six very quick thumbnails, two of which have escaped over the past year when I opened the tank to clean the front glass. Thankfully I quickly caught them and returned them to the viv. Does anyone have tips on how to trim the background without giving them too much time to jump out the front? Typically when I open it they retreat to a bromeliad but I'm worried if the front is open for too long I may have an escapee on my hands. Should I get a long handled trimmer and do it from the front or maybe slide the top forward a little and trim it from above? Any tips are appreciated.
