    Sorry, yes that was your tank i meant angel.

    Seriously would need ti invest in polyester thread and a decorative rock to anchor it too. I think the reason my anacharis always died in the tanks with substrate in it is I may have always buried the bunches to deep. Maybe i'll try to get the larger smooth decorative river rocks from petsmart when i'm there next, or a nice piece of driftwood that will fit in my tank with a hole in it to accomodate both either crypto or java fern, with a bunch of anacharis.

    I know it would have to be white polyester thread to prevent dye contamination.

    It is a 10g bowfront that I use as a grow out tank for young angelfish. Right now, there's only a female blue ram in there, soon to move out.

    Yeah, I don't know, anacharis just grows well, like an inch everyday. I only have a 10w spiral CFL lighting the whole tank for 7hrs. I think I might have used a bit of fertilizer, but is really not necessary with anacharis. Try to find polyester thread. The cotton stuff will just decay quickly and your anacharis will free.

    And if you're intetested, just like java fern and anubias, don't tie the plant stems/strands too tightly. The bottom of the plant will rot and 'cut off' the top part. It will also send out rooter anchors on its own and attach to gravel. I had a nice bunch of it growing in a corner of my 46g bowfront, but not anymore. It always did ok for me, but I prefer it to look at least a bit in control. If left to go free, it'll develop all sorts of side shoots and look messy, but then again, maybe that's your thing.....to each their own-right?

    I wonder if you could just use fishing line. Your loops would need to be tied off fairly loose in order to not cut off the plant, but the line would be even less visible than white thread.

    I use it all the time-just knot it a couple times as it likes to undo itself-or better yet put a dab of super glue gel on the knot.

    Hmm, I thought about fishing line....but not the glue! That should hold it. I used to fish with my dad when I was young and those knots are hard to tie!

    To Shidohari: Yes, you cannot plant any leaves of anacharis. The covered parts will surely rot! You can weigh it down with fishing line or thread until it develops is own roots and anchors itself into the substrate.

    And idk, I just use whatever colour thread I have, but you might be right about colour leeching into the water. However, I never noticed anything myself....
