Was that the weighted plant 3 pack? I bought that and the only one that isn't falling apart is the plastic grass one.

Yep. =]
If you look at all the packages you'll notice that the plants tend to be assorted.

You get a different three in each pack! =]

I picked one with light green arrow shaped leaves (fav color! <3), dark green and red leaves that looks kinda like a tree, and one with dark green surf-board-shaped leaves.

The surf-board plant fell apart but the other two are sturdy. =]

One of the stems pops out of the weight on the dark green and red plant but pops back in easily enough. =]

I wanted to get the one with the grassy plant but was afraid it might be too pointy. =] How's that one working out so far? =]

Silk plants are fine to use as long as there aren't metal wires, so it's good that you took them out...metal rusts, and it's not good for the fish if it seeps into the water...

I always get non-aquarium silk plants since they're a lot cheaper.

But hot glue (the clear sticks) and aquarium silicone are safe to use in your tank.

Thanks for the welcome! :) My fish's name is Victor, he's a black and blue VT :) I've only had him for a month and he got sick on me twice and this forum saved him! So thanks everyone :) He's doing great now, but it makes me wonder what the pet stores do (or don't do) to these guys...

Victor loves the grassy plant, it was pointy and stood straight up at first, but it becomes softer and more flexible after a few weeks. Victor seems to like it pretty well, I catch him sitting or sleeping on it sometimes! :)

I think I'll pick up a mini-glue gun and just use the leaves and not the stems... Thanks guys! :)

Aw! What a cute name! <3 Glad he's doing better now! =]

Oh! there's a neat tutorial you might be interested in since you're getting a glue gun anyway... lemme find it real quick.....

Here it is! =] It's instructions on how to make your own leaf hammock! =]

If you end up getting a broad leaf plastic plant then you could try it! =]
