That was rude and untrue a better way of wording it then is safe if properly cared for and kept away from things that might eat it.

That sounds better, but in order to be 100% helpful, you need to EXPLAIN what proper care is and who can;t eat it.

Trust me, I worked on a gaming wbsite in which I needed to help out new players EVERYDAY for over a year. This meant I was helping anywhere up to 100 people a day. You learn not to skim around the details.

People want help, and they want detailed and TRUE help.

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

...it does look nice, but you need to say WHY it's put halfway in the tank, Chocolate.

Don't be afraid to use multiple sentences. Most people prefer a paragraph of information than one ambiguous sentence.

Lucky Bamboo is a Dracne. It is Semi-Aquatic and dies months after being submerged. When planted with leaves above tanks it becomes a safe and very useful tool because they are not limitedd by CO2 in tanks and can remove more nutrients. Because there is more CO2 in air then water.

I'm just stating that bamboo is not 100% safe and it should be grown with great caution, you are telling people it's fine. It poses health risks to many different animals. I am stating my opinion, please have respect to not slander on my advice.

Leaves falling into the tank, other animals in your house eating it, thus encouraging them to stalk your fish tank, the roots rotting in the water, fertilizers they use to grow lucky bamboo imported from other countries. Would you like more reasons? What it really comes down to is there are great number of people who have lost their fish from lucky bamboo whether it be by their own mistake or the bamboo, I would never advise someone to try it out before they know the risk involved. You could eat peanut butter if your allergic, but why risk it?

Chocolate you are very intelligent, I love how you never give up on what you believe in, much like I do, you just can't take it personal when someone completely disagrees with you, it's why we don't allow political discussion on here, you state your opinion and move on, if other people post opposing views it is up to the reader to decide which is right, not you.
