My amazing two pint lucky bamboo has been going for 10 years! It is starting to grow a lead shoot but getting less green and less leaves. Can I prune it to keep it going?

Since these are actually a type of Dracaena and not a true Bamboo, you can prune these to fix their shape! They have a different growth habit so pruning can help them to be more "full" looking.
