I am not a fan of disposable plants in my pumilio tanks. Seems like every time I trim a plant, remove a pup, toss a beat up brom, I end up pulling eggs or tads at the same time. It's not a big deal with thumbs, but it is a big deal with pums. I have vowed to try and never remove any plant material from my pumilio tanks unless it is absolutely necessary.
