Well I had it in my tank for a few days and removed it. It was a fairly tall bamboo so the leaves were not fully submerged. They also had it twisted around eac other so that it looked woven. Its pretty meet. But it looks just as nice planted as it did in my tank. After taking it out, I got my lil buddies a banana plant instead. They look pretty neat, and I wanted one. ANd my lfs happened to get them in, which they never get new plants in always the same ol' ones. So I took this as my opportunity. But how do these work? Thr banana roots are dupposed to stay above the substrate right? How do I get it to anchor then?
