Switching from driftwood to plastic

Hi, I'm considering removing my driftwood and replacing it with some plastic ornaments. I'm just curious if my anubias plants will thrive on the plastic as well as the driftwood. thanks for any comments!

Assuming the "plastic" is decor made for an aquarium, you will have to attach Anubias with cotton thread or fishing line. It may or may not take hold, depending upon the decor surface.

May I ask why you want to remove wood? It has benefits.

The wood is starting to create little splinters and it has become very difficult to keep the floor of the tank clean, even with vacuming it during my weekly water changes. The one plastic ornament I have is a fake rock with a lot of grooves and small crevices. I'm hoping the plant will root if I tie it down.

  • the wood is supposed to be malaysian driftwood. i bought it on ebay, and only assume that it is correctly identified. i have had it in the tank for about 10 months now.
the fish are platies, mollies, neon tetras, zebra danios, and cherry barbs.
