And any that turn yellow I just cut off with scissors.
Take that nail out now, please. It will rust and kill your fish. That is not a safe way to fertilize/feed your plants.
Also, Wyvern, how big is your goldfish tank? Because it looks like your tank is very overstocked. Goldfish get around 10 or more inches long and require at least 20 gallons each with heavy filtration.
Idolsandanchors- it did look like your grass plant was dying so good call on taking it out.
