Hmmmm never thought of this one but i would love to know how it turns out. I know the sort you mean, i think it called `lucky bamboo` or something like that. Do you think t will grow completely underwater though?

well when i went to the pet store it was in the tanks there and the lady said it should be ok but she wasnt sure with oscars. I also have sustrate in my tank instead of gravel so i'm not sure if it can grow in that either but i guess i'll find out lol

I had bamboo in my Oscar tank for awhile, and it actually grew quite well. Just make sure it is held down by the substrate really well. Also lighting is huge. I didn't use my lights for a couple days and they instantly started drooping. Just make sure it's secure, because I remember my Oscar pulling it out several times. Good luck!

I love cars/driving- I have a 2005 VW golf TDI- 40mpg in town, even while burning gassers =D (talk cars with me)

Mine do great! I had them in the substrate but got tired of moving them for gravel vac.

Yes lighting is key.

Mine are sitting in a shower soap holder thing stuck on the back of the tank and stick up out the top of the back of the tank.

Realistically they arent meant to be fully submerged. But you can get away with submerging them for a while. Im not sure if they are subject to root/stalk rot while fully submerged for extended periods of time.

I've never had good luck with bamboo in my tanks. The roots eventually rot and the stalk dies soon after.
