Yea, my ex's sister had bamboo in her tank, the bamboo looked fine for months. But the water quality wasn't all that fine. If you keep up with water changes it could be alright though.

Off topic, but, I like your username. I <3 Tux!

All your tanks look awesome, I'm so jealous. I'll post a pic of my most successful tank later when I find the camera charger

This is a 16 gallon tank. I planted it about a month ago, so it's still developing.

Hey - beautiful tank. Well, the aquarium store had my leggier plants labeled as Anacharis, but I'm not quite sure if they are or not. I have several sprigs of hornwort in my tank (finer-leafed, hard to see in my photo). Supposedly they're floaters anyway and rot if buried (they don't form roots designed for anchoring), so they come out of my gravel. I just let them go crazy and float if they want to.

I don't use root tabs - I just add 1-2 drops of Nutrifin aquatic plant food to my water changes and their lighting is a daylight fluorescent left on ~10hrs/day.

Aww that's too bad! It was so beautiful! Did a betta kill your plants or some other fish? I have a molly but don't give her any plants because she would eat them and I have a difficult time growing plants as it is.
