Talking Drax's Favorite Plant Revealed

Finally found out what that plant is that I'm using in the tank...

It's a Variegated Philodendron Vine...

It's still not rotting hahaha the submerged leaves are actually starting to shoot out roots into the water. When I get home Friday I'll show some pics.

Would be horrible if suddenly you guys tell me it's killing him haha Cuz Drax REALLY LOVES fluttering around that plant hahahaha

Like he actually FLIPS out when I remove or Adjust the plant. Like when I did the water change a few days ago he got really depressed not having the plant around for awhile.

Can you post a pic of what the plant looks like? because there are many types of plants labelled as "philodendron" I have one in my tank but im not sure if its the same as yours.

I think thats the same as the one I have. I would recommend having the leaves out of the surface of the water. If you opt to keep them submerged things will be fine for a while but it will eventually rot. Take the plant out at the first signs of rotting or you you can risk your fish to ammonia poisoning.

See haha thats where I stop that vine thats under water is actually shooting out roots now so who knows haha maybe it likes the water XD. I do check the plant (When I'm home) for signs and rinse it off and clean it.

Which is when Drax gets all huffy hahaha.
