I have seen bamboo in bamboo shrimp tanks at petsmart, but I have also read online that you shouldn't keep bamboo plants completly submerged in water. have any of you succesfully kept bamboo in your fishtanks?

They do best with only the last segment submerged.
The segment from which the roots are growing.

I have bamboo growing in the guppy sand tank and it does pretty well. It's about two foot tall. About 2 two inches is buried, and all the leaves are out of the water.

Yes the leaves have to be out of the water. Any leaves in the water will rot and pollute your tank. Here are some not very good pics. One is of the bamboo stalk in the tank and the other is of the leaves growing above the tank. Hope that helps.

No, it has to have leaves to grow, totally submerged bamboo will rot.
