i think i said this... i liked the plant box idea choclate! (twas amongst the numerous articles attempting to prove each other to be idiots and that yall are right). i will give that a try as well as some floating plants (hornwort?). i want to take apart a moss ball and watch it make a carpet, told that it can. what do you guys think of that idea? the plant box (going to be in the back where only the cat can jump) will hold the bamboo. i have already scooted the heavy tank over 2" to discourage Rico ,the cat, from jumping.

Wait, I thought that the bamboo plants were like, 50% safe? o.O

They can't be perfectly safe if they can still possibly affect the fish.
Even if, let's say 2 people don't experience problems with the bamboo, it's outweight by the 100's that do.
I still say that the bamboo can be harmful if not used/taken care of correctly.

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

I'm sorry, but I myself am not telling people that lucky bamboo is safe only when not eaten. Especially since it can be proved that some fish and shrimp DO die if the plant rots, dies, or when the top gets wet.

What I'm trying to get at Chocolate, is that before you jump and say something is completely safe, let them know that A. It is possible it can kill your fish if you put the top of the bamboo in the water. B. It dies and dissovles.

When you go to the doctor, he gives you a reccomended dose of something, right? And there are warning signs on the medicine about overdosing, right? And it gives you a list of side effects right? And it also gives you step by step on what to do if you have a certain sympton already?

You can't just say that something is only harmful when it's eating when there are other negative effects of the bamboo. Because what if someone has a bamboo issue which is causing the death of a fish, and the result was the bamboo?

Well, you can't just say it wasn't it because the fish didn't eat it :/

I think that if you look at the whole picture sometimes, you can be a little mroe helpful.

His priority is being "right" rather than the safety of other people's fish.
