How do you guys feel about artificial plants?

Was looking around didn't seem many threads on them, looks like live plants especially for the 5gallon + crowd is the way to go. Wanted to see how you feel bout them? pros/cons? and some good sites to buy nice artificial plants

Pro's about artifical plants - They don't need idividual care and they can be moved easily plus provides the fish with a safe soft hiding spot.

Con's: If your fish is one who does anything to eat they might try to unravel it. (Maka's done it. I'm waiting until tomorrow to see if she does anymore damage to it.)

cons, if they are too hard or have sharp parts they can tear their fins

pros, they can be bight and colourful, and you don't have to worry about killing them like live plants

I use live plants for my betta's tank and silk plants in my quarantine tank.

Artificial plants are sterile, soft ones are cozy.
Cons of AP's: can be sharp. Can look fake(mine doesn't)

Pros of live: can help clean the tank, looks good
Cons of live: a lot of work, can die, can rot/'melt'

I actually have one realistic cloth plant and some java moss in my tank.
