You can't assume everyone will have as much luck growing it as you do, the main reason I stopped using it was because it did not do well in my water parameters. Which caused it to rot and make my water dirty, peace lilies are one of the few plants that will never rot in my hob filters. I love the beautiful blooms they produce as well. However if the bloom dies and falls into the water my fish will die.

All this arguing is confusing me. I like emerald would like to put bambooo in my tank. My nitrites have grown uncontrollably and I don't have lighting for fully submerged plants so I want to try bamboo. I have pothos and they don't seem to be doing the job.

So as long as the bamboo isn't fully submerged it helps right?

Correct but Nitrates are better and nitrites should not be high in a cycled tank.

I heard bamboo isn't techinally an aquatic plant, so I don't think that it will help much with the cycle....

Have you tried plants like hornwort or duckweed?

It can be grown semi-submerged it will help a bit in cycling the roots will provide room for BB.

Im trying to cycle my tank but it has proved to be impossible. I just want to keep my axolotl safe and I was hoping that the bamboo would remove the nitrites.

I don't think hornwort would survive in my tank because there is no light. I have no access to duckweed either :( I have java fern and java moss in there but not enough to make a difference

anyway I don't want to take over Emerald's thread

Ahhh yea, you need light for hornwort and duckweed....

I don't know how safe bamboo is with an axolotl :/

Have you tried the other fish section? Or maybe made another thread on this one?

I feel like you might need someone experienced to help answer that :3
