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?
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.
