Thread: Simple Way to Anchor/Tie Plants
08-17-2011, 07:00 AM #21If it's called tourist season why can't I shoot them?
Brutal honesty will be shown on this screen.
I think my fish is adjusting well to the four gallon, He's laying on his side attempting to go to sleep on the bottom of the gravel.
Tolerance is a great thing to have, so is the ability to shut up.
The truth is not something you hide behind but what you stand on!
An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.

thread around the middle part of the rhizome and around the driftwood several times always works for me... unfortunately sometimes the thread is hard to maneuver if your hands get wet, so have a towel nearby. also, thread dissolves after a period of time in water, so once your anubia has attached, voila, it's gone.

Fishing line for me too. Fishing line outlasts thread and you need something long lasting because it takes a while for roots to attached to the wood.

I cut the bottom off a plastic soda bottle (16-oz size), poked two holes in it, then smeared aquarium cement to glue gravel around the rim, inside & out.
When it's dry (2 days), rinse well & tie a piece of wood to it with fishing line, threading it through the holes. Use more fishing line to tie the plant to the wood.
Place in tank, then sprinkle gravel to cover the rest of the plastic..
