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

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.
