Chocolate, it decomposes AND releases toxins, as poluk said.

And thank you poluk for that information! Now I know not to add shrimp to a bamboo tank o.o



Mine stay semi submerged but have posed no problems in the 9 months I've had them. The fish don't behave differently and the water is fine. My family is smart enough to keep the bbamboo away from the dogs. It's one of the things we've done right t-t

I seem to have a problem with collecting things with scales and fins. Oops

Lucky bamboo is also toxic to hermit crabs.

However, I have had some growing out of the top of one of my tanks for over a year. My problem with this plant is that it is over 3ft tall now, from base to tip. It is in a tank that is about a foot tall. If it doubles in height in the next year, as I expect it will, transporting it will be a complete pain.



Remember that the tank your fish lives in is his or her's whole world. Ask yourself this question, and answer it honestly: would you choose to live there?

Who's wrong?

And Kytkattin, how'd you get yours to grow so high? o.O mine have never grown that fast before.
