There are more than one way yes but there are still many incorrect ways fish keeping is an exact science.

I have to disagree.. anything dealing with living creatures is never an exact science.. science, yes, exact -- no. Each creature - same species or not - is different and will react differently to any given situation. This why some things work well for some people while not for others.

My kids are a prime example.. just when I thought we had them down... they come and throw a curve-ball. Ask any parent and they will tell you the same thing. hehehe

I think it's an approximate science with a large margin of flexibility within the range of what is correct :) but there is a right and wrong

I agree there are more wrong ways but there are still many right ways.

I had a pothos rooting in water. After reading this thread, I moved it to my tank. Roots are submerged, leaves are above the water.

Within hours, there was a bubble nest all around it, and my Betta was perched on top of a big root, napping. Guess he likes it. :)

Dont know why I just saw this but YAY Im glad your fishies are loving the pothos. mine does too. Its been 85% submerged now for right at a month and is actually growing better than it did with only the roots submerged. Im watching it like a hawk just in case but I see new leaves every week. I credit alot of that to the vitachem I started to add to the water about the same time I submerged it(its tissue soluble liquid vitamin supplement) its been great for Sushi AND his plant. But Im sure the plant would do fine w/o it as well. If I notice any rot I will update but so far after 30 days its still going strong and looking good!
