Welcome to TFK, Hamstern. We're glad you decided to join us. Are you setting up a tank? Details, details.

You could, but you would need to be very careful as different parasites and bacteria could be introduced to your tank that way. If I was going to do that I'd treat the plants with Potassium Permanganate and that medication is a little costly (not to mention very messy and great care must be used when dealing with it) so you may be better off price & convenience wise to purchase some plants instead.

Do you know what your water parameters are? Soft/hard/ph? It's easier to keep fish that are suited to your water parameters, rather than the other way around. What types of fish catch your eye?
