True. Most of the fish wouldn't really be an issue with this but I would worry about the cories. They tend to flit around under my hands whenever I am moving things about. I just didn't want to stress them by removing them either. I guess I will play it by ear. It won't be happening until I have the better part of a day to dedicate to this. Maybe sometime after the holiday weekend. I would really like to get rid of the ugly plastic log my Rainbow shark lives in but, he really is attached to the log.
I guess as far as crappy plastic stuff goes, it at least sort of blends. I plant plants right up close to it so not that much of it shows. I want my fish to be happy and that seems to be a favorite by Rainbow so... I will regretably be adding it back into the tank. I am unfortunately also very very limited in what kinds of plants are available locally so... I can't make as many changes as I would like.
Any suggestions for a super duper easy plant that gets very very tall for a background? Not easily uprooted?
