With regards to attaching plants. Could this be done in a bucket outside while I'm waiting for the Xmas tree to come down and my new tank to be started up.

I don't attatch my plants too well because my cichlids like to redecorate a lot. Id rather wake up to find my plant floating in the tank than to find shredded pieces of the plant with the rhizome still firmly attatched. I'll be interested to follow this thread because I'm trying to learn about plants having not kept any till recently. Thanks

As Willow as said already they will manage to find a way. It just takes much longer and is hard for them to. Wood is usually not a problem in getting plants to attach too. Rocks on the hand can be. If they are too smooth it is difficult for them.
