I feel like a butcher
Apparently I've not yet gotten the timing and quantity of ferts just right yet. The plants are doing better I think.. in fact right after vacation, I was downright happy when I got home and thought they looked super. Then there was a few weeks of no ferts because I ran out and now I'm back to cutting off old leaves.
Hopefully the new ferts will kick in and with the butchery-work my plants will pick up.

I know exactly how you feel! My tank gets completely overgrown if I let it go, but I still feel bad cutting back anything. I have a paranoid fear that for some reason my plants are all going to die and then oh boy I will sure regret pulling out those vals that were crowding out the java ferns.300 gallon mega tank: sailfin pleco, clown loaches, silver dollars, roseline sharks, congo tetras, new world cichlids
125 gallon office tank: Africian cichlids, synodontis catfih
75 gallon community tank: bolivian rams, black skirt tetras, dwarf neon rainbowfish, corys, harlequin rasboras, otos, bristlenose and bulldog plecos, assassin snails, various shrimp
60 gallon goldfish tank: fancy goldfish

Are you serial? :-P
I can only empathize and add that my hands have the same blood on them :-PGas mileage isn't everything OIIIIIIIO
Lack of planning on your part does not constitute an emergency on my part.
Why pretend there are no stupid questions? Actually, There are many stupid questions: "Should I drink this bleach?" Is just one example.
Having said that, Just because it's a stupid question doesn't mean that it shouldn't be asked. It's better to know.
A warm beer is better than a cold beer. Because nothing is better than a cold beer, and a warm beer is better than nothing.

My hands, they're stained with chlorophyll!!!
Been there with the plants. For some reason I've always had some issues with broad leafed plants. But so far this year, that lucks turned a corner. My Hygro and Amazon are kicking into high gear lately.
My victims though involve Java Moss, Vals, More Vals, Anacharis, Myrio, and Money Wort. Seems odd, doesn't it. Well, somehow I managed to kill off these populations at one time or another.
