- So does bamboo rots when put inside the aquarium? Or is it bad for the aquarium fish?
People put bamboo in tanks, so it is not likely going to hurt the tank. It could rot over time, so you'll have to keep an eye on that. Don't really know. I have dried cactus (cholla) skeleton in my tank, and it's holding up very well, with no decay. If you get tons of decay, you'll see high nitrates, and you should remove. Probably worth a shot. I'd boil it for 3-4 minutes and let cool before you put it in the tank.
