The plant is clever...I bought a dark grey "cover sheet" folder & you could also cut the clear side off,
then slide the dark piece between the two clear dividers...you could punch holes in it if you want.. but water would go around the sides of it (since it doesn't need to be secured)...it would leave a few inches clear along the sides so they could see each other sometimes.
So you may have heard that I took out most of the live plants in my tank and replaced them with fake... I like to think its still a good imitation. Still have 2 java ferns (behind driftwood) but thats about it. Oh yeah, I was going to keep him a secret for a bit longer but there is my new guy :) An orange dalmation VT. Have had him for a week or maybe a bit more.
