Most of the plants I buy come with a lead-type anchor that is wrapper around the stem. Because I have a substrate that isn't too deep, I've been keeping the anchors around the plants where the substrate isn't too deep. But now I'm wondering if that is good practice. Does anyone have an opinion on that?
I've used those and my own version of that...fishing weights, for almost @$#%^& years! (let's just keep it at lots of years,'kay?!)!! and none of my fish had any ill effects. I do take the plants out and wash them frequently,but,no ill effects to date!! Oh...are they live or plastic/silk??? I don't think that matters tho...:shock:
They are live ones...
I still need to see the day that a plastic plant will die from an anchor of any type... sorry MM... that was too easy! LOL!
However... your post answers my question perfectly! Thanks!
i would be very careful putting led inside your tank, very toxic
Anyone care to comment?
Like I said before...HONEST!! I've never had any trouble with those type of anchors!! HONEST!:shock::shock::shock: I sometimes stuff the weights into surgie plastic if I've got the time. But,if it says it's ok for aquariums,it usually is!! HONEST!!:-P
Well as long as your honest... and Merry... heck I'll believe ya! :-)
you can use almost anything else other than let. heck get a bag of small aquarium rocks at the pet store as anchors. i would deffinitly not put lead in your tank. i mean would you suck on a piece of lead?
Point taken lampert... understand that I am holding back on the "sucking on lead" comment here... probably for the benefit of everyone else :D
they dont hurt anything but they surly dont help the plants much. i would add to your substrate and get rid of the weights.
