Question Lucky Bamboo plants?

Are they a good plant to use for a 3 gallon and a 1 gallon tank? I have them set up in my tanks and I have seen many tanks that have them. will they help my tanks at?

thanks.

They work really good, as long as you do not submerge the leaves.
I have them( actually anywhere from 3-5) in all my Betta tanks, breeding tanks and grow-out tanks, and they are growing like crazy.
They are actually a Dracenea(spelling?).
I have a couple of variegated Drancenea in one of my grow-out tanks and it is doing great.
If you submerge the leaves, they will rot, just submerge the stalk and roots.
