And the weights are harmless, they are no longer lead to prevent contamination of the water.
It's around my Alternanthera reineckii I had it around my Dragon Flame (Hemigraphis repanda) but it didn't last very long in the tank, two plants were pretty much mush, and the third the stems were mush below the substrate.
