moores and fake plants
I was wondering if there are any safe fake plants out there for moores (and other telescope eye's) ?
A lot of people say silk, but I have noticed that even the silk plants can possibly do some damage. any suggestions?
Why not live plants?
Why did I think all goldies like to munch and chow down on live plants??
Not all plants, dear. It's kinda a trial and error though. If you can manage to grow plants faster than the moors can eat, then they're perfectly acceptable to keep. Duckweeds, Egeria densa and hornworts will work just fine. Anubias, Amazon swords, lotus and Java ferns will work equally well. I doubt the moors can easily destroy these ones.
My fantail, telescope and moor all seem to leave giant Val and swords alone :)

I forgot the vals! They work well too.
Thanks for the rrply's, the reason I was thinking fake instead of live was because of the size of my tank.
Some plants will work just fine there. You need to make sure they're firmly rooted. I prefer to pot mine while tanks are barebottom to make it easier to vacuum goldfish poop. Cryptocoryne plants also work.
Thanks for the idea I was kinda thinking the same with the whole potted plants bare bottom. Would I have to worry about the fish hurting there eye's on the pots ? what kind of pots do you use?
Anubias is awesome... I attach it to driftwood... that way, no uprooting and you can rearrange it periodically to entertain your goldies.
