I think you will need a receipt in order to return it as proof of purchase.
And what i meant is just to have the ROOTS in the water. You could stick it in the filter or through a gap in your hood and have the leaves up out of the water.
Dont buy random plants at places like petco. Only stuff you've heard of. As far as AQUATIC plants go - I know my petco sells java fern, moss, crypts, and anubias in their tanks. They also sell some aquatic plants in those little pastic tubes. These include wisteria, hygrophila (labeled as compacta), and Java fern (labeled as tropica fern).
plants not to buy:
- Kyoto grass
- mondo grass
- brazil sword
- lucky bamboo
Filters have a cap on the intake tube. You can also put a sponge around it if you like. Its practically impossible for a fish to be sucked in the filter.
