Is your bamboo entirely submerged? It will eventually rot underwater if it is entirely submerged, and it seems it still may rot even if it's not.

I've read that as long as the leaves are above water, lucky bamboo does fine in tanks.

Plants

I promise I will not put any more plants in this tank (for at least the next 30 days). Just finished today.

My bamboo leaves have been above water and it's still alive. It was tricky though because I had to put a top on the tank and squeeze the leaves through a hole every time I cleaned it.

Yup, as long as the leafy parts are out of the water and it has the right kind of light, it'll grow just fine. I switched to an in-tank submersible filter and stuck the bamboo leaves out of the filter 'notch' in the hood.

That looks like mondo grass. That is not aquatic and will rot under water. I put it into my tank, and had nothing but problems until I did more research. It really messed up my water quality.

Someone mentioned Cabomba. It's very pretty. Does it shed a lot?
