Aww thanks everyone! I appreciate the feedback...however we have no china town or even asian stores where I am, sticks of Maine lol. We do have a homedepot, its the only place I think I remember seeing bamboo. Would the bamboo from homedepot work or would it die in the tank? Ive read somewhere that leaving the leaves out of the water helps to keep it alive?
I just wasnt sure if I could use this type of bamboo or if it had to be special aquarium bamboo lol.
A few Q's to go with it...
Can you trim the top of the stock down to keep it under the hood of the tank? what might be the best way to acclimate it to the water? And does anyone know if salt will effect it? (thinking of trying a piece in my brackish guppy tank too if all goes well?
If real bamboo turns out to not be an option for me, do they sell replica or dried bamboo that might be safe for the tank?
ofcourse these are too big and pricey but just to give you an idea of what I mean
Im kind of trying to hide the filters in a creative way lol.
