Hello again, I have 2 more questions.
I think I've heard that hot glue gun is safe to use for gluing plants down, etc? I want to avoid having to spend more money to buy silicone, if possible. Has anyone tried this?
Has anyone tried putting regular plastic plants (like the kind you find in the silk flower/craft section....NOT the fish section.) in your tank? I understand not to have anything with metal that will rust, but these are just the soft plastic stems and soft flowers. I got a whole bunch for $1.00, and they look/feel JUST like the ones they sell for fish, except without the hefty price tag.
Thanks so much for your advice! I love this forum!
