Despite my goldfish taking great joy in destroying all the greenery I ever provide for them, I am going to make an attempt at a planted tank This is the tank at the moment: I bought some elodea a little while ago and it seems to be surviving so far. I kept it bunched with the ceramic rings to try and keep it from being uprooted by the fish, but as you can see they have still managed to pull it up, so I don’t know if there’s anything I can do to stop them I love that the fish are entertained, but sometimes I wish they would just let me have the plants where I want them! I also have some lucky bamboo in the corner (the leaves are above the surface of the water) which has been in there for 2 years now and is doing well. At the same time as buying the elodea I also foolishly tried some rocks & driftwood in the tank, and almost immediately regretted it as the fish decided to spawn and in their excitement managed to scrape themselves up on it and lose some scales. I thought the decor I’d used was smooth enough but obviously not! So that's all been taken out again and now I need something in there to tie my anubias to and to hopefully weigh down my air curtain, as without the rocks it's now unearthed itself from the sand. In a moment of inspiration I took an old skull vodka bottle (bereft of vodka and thoroughly rinsed!) and figured it’s glass so it’s super smooth and they can’t possibly hurt themselves on it (surely?!?), so I’ve tied one of my plants to it and I quite like it. I’m thinking that maybe I’ll need to empty & refill it when I do water changes so the water inside doesn’t get stagnant or anything, but other than that can anyone foresee any problems with using it as decor? Because now I’m eyeing up the alcohol cupboard for any more interestingly shaped bottles... I'm not sure at the moment if I should try any other plants too or if I should just get more elodea as at least I know they like it and I don't think it does it too much harm to be uprooted occasionally. I also have a bit of java fern, but again like the rest of my anubias I just need something to attach it to.
