  1. Default bamboo decoration

    I have some stalks of bamboo, would it be safe to cut sections and drill holes in them for fish to swim through? If so is there anything that needs to be done with the stalks first?
    Thank you.

    I don't think there should be any problem, except that they may float, in which case you'd probably have to attach them to a piece of slate or something.

    I have about 15 stalks in 2 different tanks - they are just down in the gravel and have done great - my fish really seem to like being able to swim all around them. I just have them at one end making a staggering wall of bamboo.

    Make sure the edges are smooth as a rough edge could cause some nasty damage.

    We must be talking about different bamboo - I was referring to the lucky bamboo that you buy with the leaves - about a foot long.

    I dont think bamboo will rot. Why else is it used for construction inbasian countries. We all know they have the HIGHEST safety standards XD
    I wonder if i plant one of my tiger barbs would the demon seed grow to a full tree?
    gotta love them bunnies!

    Heck if I know. It was just a fleeting thought I had. I don't get paid to know about bamboo so I don't.
