I have some plain Java Moss and also some Christmas Moss that needs a bit of a trim. What’s the best way of doing this without it looking like it’s just been to the barbers?! :lol:

With java moss it tends to grow a bit unruly so I just literally pull some of the longest pieces off, as it grows back really quick.
I did trim it with scissors once or twice but ended up with tiny fragments of moss all over the tank.

Pulling it off of whatever its attached to isn't the most gracious way but at least I get the off cuts out of the aquarium.

Java tends to look thicker and better with trimming ,interestingly I find it looks different in different locations in the aquarium on the substate area it can look like a different species
