HOB=Hang on Back. Just an abbreviation for the type of filter that hangs on the back of your tank. ;)

My expression? Is it regional? Dawn breaks on Marble Head, means I suddenly understand. (There's a town nearby called Marblehead, I guess that's where it comes from) and the stalks sold as bamboo are dracenas, semi-aquatic. Can you buy real bamboo? It's a grass, but I guess it could be trimmed.

Might be a regional thing....I've never heard the expression myself, but I understood what you meant. xD

Real, true bamboo is next to impossible to find as far as I know. You need to REALLY know what to look for if you want to set out on that quest. Lucky Bamboo, provided the leaves are kept above the waterline, is perfectly fine to use in your aquarium though. Plenty of people do without any problems.

I wonder what is the lowest temperature it can handle? I think people grow it as a decorative annual up here. My dad moved to FLA and used it as a privacy screen around his house there. He had a devil of a time getting it to stay in one place. I think it's why they invented machetes!
I am so psyched about my new tank!!! I wish all this Xmas stuff would be over so I can work on it. I hear those dried-up bulbs you see in stores will grow in soil-based tanks? I've tried growing them in just a decorative bowl w/the "lucky bamboo" dracena, but they always just rot.

Those bulbs are kinda a hit or miss....sometimes they rot, sometimes they grow. If you want to give them a shot again, stick them in a separate container and set them by a window where they can get some good sunlight, then plant the ones that sprout and toss the ones that don't after a while.

I put them in decorative glass containers in my window, covered by pretty gravel, surrounded by other plants and a terrarium. I thought it would be nice to have a little water garden, but the bulbs never grew :0(

Yeah, they don't always sprout and grow. Sometimes you'll get a good one or two though.
