Mine have been in there about two months. They took a month or so to get used to the tank. Now they are growing steadily.

Is there any specific bamboo that would thrive partially submerged in water and will reduce nitrates? And is it possible to just stick them in a HOB just like the pothos?

I'm wondering because I recently just got some pothos for my Oscar tank, which is in the basement. I know my parents would freak if I put pothos on their community tank since it's not the prettiest looking plants. But if I can put a bamboo in theirs and still get the same effect, I might give it a try. It's in our living room and it does get sunlight.

Update on the bamboo:
So it went really well at first but then we moved the tank to a spot that gets little sun most of the day. and then the smell started.....idk what was going on but the bamboo smelt HORRIBLE! at first i thought it was my nitrates but it wasnt. so the bamboo failed in my tank. any suggestions for plants that dont need a ton of sunlight?

Peace, Love, and Water

Mine have survived like they have with minimal light. They are all showing steady growth but I think its only due to how I have them setup. They are sitting in a suction cup tray and only 1-2 inches are submerged with the tops sticking out the top of the back. See pic on first page B)

Can I stick some bamboo inside my Emperor 400 just like the Pothos? The aquarium is in our living room near the window, so it will get sunlight.

I had mine in a hob filter for a few weeks. They did ok in there but for some reason when I put them directly into the tank did they start to grow. They did fine in there but I kept having to clean out the muck that developed in the bottom of the hob filter.

I have a tank with a couple of bamboo plants growing nicely. :)
I have then in small cups filled with gravel & they are mostly submerged. They don't get any direct sunlight & I'm not using lights on that tank and they are doing great. :)
