Peace Lilies

How many of you use semi aquatic plants in aquariums. I keep them leaves above the tank roots in tank. I use the plants like lucky bamboo peace lilies in the filters. I keep the lid off the filter sand the plants there I use a different kind of lid they get the light. In both the tanks the part for the filter a small hole between the filter and lid and the tall plants there they look great one has the stem to the bottom the leaves are nice not in the tanks. It is nice. How many of you do that.

Wow! I'd love to keep a peace lily like that!! Unfortunately I don't have a HOB filter... can peace lillies be encorporated in different ways? I have some gaps in my aquarium lid that may fit roots but I honestly don't know how the whole process works.

I grow pothos and peace lilies in a couple of my tanks.

My pothos is attached to the side of the tank using an o-shaped suction cap, while my peace lilies are wedged in between my internal filter and the back wall of my tank.

The peace lilies only just went in so I haven't seen any spectacular growth, but my half-dead pothos now has five new leaves it grew in the span of around a week or two.

Nice I keep peace lilies lucky bamboo and pothos in my two. To the person who says you do not need charcoal, it is not for the BB it destroys things like tannins that ruin the tank. I keep mine behind the filter caterige. I find the plant one a great system. My peace lilies in the ten gallon grow so fast I have to replace the caterige because the two ones root into it I just put a new carte rage in and trim the roots. Mine grow so fast. 2 peas lilies and 1 lucky bamboo ions filter. 1 peace lily 1 lucky bamboo and 2 pothos that were originally one. The one peace lily nearly died it had one leaf. Now three are growing in. This plant system is great.

charcoal isnt needed unless there is something in your tank to remove, tannins arent a bad thing and wont ruin anything (may lower ph and will make your water yellow). I dont bother with charcoal unless I need to remove something specific from the water.
