Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If youíre going to take it under your wing then youíre responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]

There are substrate-rooted plants with obvious roots that need to be buried in the substrate. There are stem plants that are planted by sticking the cut end of the stems in the substrate sufficient to hold them down. There are plants that attach to wood and rock, like mosses, ferns. ???
