Have any of you used the lucky bamboo in ur tanks? I've heard both good and bad things, but not really from a reliable ...
I've heard a lot of things about lucky bamboo being grown in fertilizer that is toxic to fish, so that would be my #1 concern. If you're absolutely, completely positive that it is fertilizer free, you can give it a try. It is not a fully aquatic plant, so it will die eventually, but it's pretty hardy and may last a while.
If you're looking for a plant to *grow* in your tank however, this is not the one.
Mine was not labled as "lucky bamboo", but I think it is. I know it wasnt used in ferts. I have had it in my tank since January, and it has been growing bigger and sprouting off new shoots ever since I put it in. I guess I got "lucky."
