Are you sure because I see some plants that my mom has planted in pots lol. How long have they been in there for? And just saying eventually the bamboo WILL rot.

I know lucky bamboo will rot slowly. You wont notice at first. As long as the leaves are out of water itll be fine though. Itll sour the water if submerged. Sometimes taking a month or so to show signs of rot.

May plants at those retail stores are marked as aquatic or semi aquatic. Semi aquatic plantsare not suited for long term aquatic life.

****Although I dont see anything wrong with your plants aside from the one bamboo having its leaves submerged. Many of these aquatic plants have similarities to land loving plants.****

I love all of your fishies.They all look so happy. I especially loveiggy. His coloration is so unique and vibrant!

kfryman: You see Emiko's tank? I've had that Anubias in there since he was in quarantine. When he was in quarantine, he had almost no fins so... I'd say about 2-3+ months. It came in one of the plastic tubeys! Anubias ARE aquatic plants, bamboo are semi-aquatic. There are lots of different types of Anubias. Some may not be aquatic, but i'm not a plant expert... all i know is that the kind i have can be in water, grow and live in it.

You're incorrect about the aquatic-ness of most of the plants, OP. Yes, anubias is fully aquatic, this is fairly well known; but most of the plants with the yellow-y/white edging are not. You have anubias, swords (I think?) and what is very obviously terrestrial plants... While they might take a while* to die, as they do they're harming the water quality as well as slowly dying.

Just because they are grown in a water tank in a petco/smart really doesnt mean anything, we're also talking about companies that willingly sell fish into 1/8 gallon "tanks", so be wise and dont trust them.

I agree with PPP the workers at a retail chain like petco do not know what they are talking about half the time (or even less). Their job is to sell you their products not do what is knowledgeable and right. It is not the workers fault that they dont know the products that they are selling its the stores for putting them in the position without giving them the training that they need.

Just going to add my two cents here. Just as pewpewpew stated the anubias is aquatic but will not live if their rizomes are in the gravel. They do best attached to a rock or a piece of driftwood. The bamboo is called semi-aquatic because it can live with it's stem in the water but not it's leaves. Anyways, you have nice tanks and beautiful bettas.
