    i had a coupon from my fish magazine for 25% entire plant order at petco, normally i only buy cat food there, but i decided to buy about 4 plants, 1 of which is a peacock fern, i get home and read it cannot be fully submerged? can i just leave it in my tank till it dies or should i take it out? is it harmful at all?

    I don't know anything about peacock ferns, but I don't think it'd be too harmful. I'd just return it.

    If you leave a semi-aquatic plant in the tank once it starts to die it throws off some kind of chemical that will mess up your water quality and could kill your fish... just return the plant imho

    They usually die and rot if left in the tank. Rotting plants raise Nitrates.
