Emm....plastic plants?

I had bad experience with plastic plants so I am wary of getting them again. BUT I love all the bright and mixed colors.
For anyone else who uses plastic plants, what brand or which ones do you use that turned out okay?

I use anything silk! Bio-orb are soft. Just go for silk not plastic.

I'm sorry, this is in the wrong section. Could someone please move it to betta chat? ~^^~

Thanks ReyesBetta! I don't have any silk ones at the stores here except one and it didn't work because the plastic on it was too rough. Weird much, but it was!
I'll look at the bio orbs. :D

hmm at petsmart they sell Marina brand plants I just got an orange and pink one(they called it a red ludwiga) that is super soft.My advice would be to go to your LPS and see what you can find that you think is safe.I also got a gel corral looking thing that my fish loves it's very soft and he likes to sleep in it.

Here are some links:

The gel plant thing here is one of the two online I have an orange one I couldn't find on the site there are 4 or 5 different kinds.

These ones are small but I have two of the blue ones a orange one a pink one and a green and red one they have not caused any problems for me. http://www.petsmart.com/product/inde...n=Product+Type

I have this and it's nice it just sits at the bottom of the tank but my tail bitter seems to get alot of interest out of it when I put it in there.

Cool, yay! Thanks. xD
I saw one of those rubbery squishy things at the store, I forgot about them. They smelled kinda funny, but that would probably go away.

Plen- plex has great plants they make very soft plastic and silk plants. The petsmart and petco brand plants are good aswell. A petsmart or lps may have tetra plants they also good. To be safe you buy pantyhose to test them and if they rip the pantyhose don't use them or return them.

55 gallon planted tank, starting over!!!( looking crappy, needs a major rescape)
