java plant

my java fern is sending out baby plants and they are getting caught in the filter. any ideas on what to do with them. i dont have anything to attach them too. they are about half an inch. i moved one to a big tank and inserted into some java moss. is this a good idea.

Can attach Java Fern to a rock, or piece of wood, with thread or fishing line.
Eventually,the plant root's will attach to the rock or wood and thread/fishing line can be removed.

The most important medication in your fish medicine cabinet is.. Clean water.

Agreed, I do not think that there are very serious so you can pitching wedge it in the moss. Anyway, I would like to tell that Java Fern is one of a few highly sought after fish tank plants.

Get the best grow box.
