How should I secure my anacharis?

I have a planted aquarium and I have anacharis in it and it keeps coming out of my substrate. I know that it feeds through its leaves so it doesn't need to be rooted but it just looks so much better when its not floating around on top of my aquarium. Any ideas?

If you have gravel substrate, just push the lower ends of the bunch of stems in the gravel and pile it up a bit. No problem with burying the crown on stem plants since there isn't one, they will root all along the stem, so you can put as much of the stems in the gravel as you need to hold it. Unless you have fish that dig, this will work; if you do a rock over it might help. If you're in sand, same idea although it will be less weight (the sand) so the rock may be mandatory.

The aquarist is one who must learn the ways of the biologist, the chemist, and the veterinarian. [unknown source]

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