Wow. That is cuteness. Severe cuteness.
I have a couple about that size...I think. Hard to compare.
Argh! I need to grow plants! No clue how. My goldfish eat them to the point of filter clogs, etc...so the first set I bought was my last.
Gorgeous tank!

Thanks!

I've read it's pretty tough to have live plants with goldfish because they either eat them or uproot them...but it can be done! This is my first planted tank so it's a lot of experimentation and I've done a lot of research. You should try again :)

If you want to see a pic of the bulbs grown, swing by my album. I JUST uploaded a pic of him in front of mine. I also posted it on a couple Betta Art threads to see if I canget lucky and get a drawing of Gus

Depends on the plant & the root system.

You can use almost any type of string to attach plants to objects. (Just can't contain any harmful ingredients/dyes/materials)

I use anything from ...........
  • butcher twine which is made out of cotton
  • fishing line (your fish can get trapped if it's done wrong.)
  • even sewing string (thin & breaks down in a few weeks = good)
  • rubber bands (not too tight against the weight & remove when they break down)
  • crazy glue (cyanoacrylate)
  • 100% silicone is used by some people, but I don't know how they cure it properly without drying out the plant.

Well, the only plants I have that need to be rooted are my hygrophilia corymbosa and bacopa caroliniana...I might try tying the stems to the rocks with thread and just see what happens. Right now, they are floating and don't really seem to be doing much except twisting to get towards the light (which I'm taking as a sign that they might eventually grow roots...)
