My opinion, the silk plants sold for aquariums, ok, silk plants sold for crafts, use with caution. They're probably the same with different branding and inflated prices for aquariums but how would you know? Better to be safe than a future post wondering why suddenly all the fish died.
hmm, anyone have experience with the fake marijuana plants that are silk? I was wantin to put a few of those in there...orrrr, can anyone recommend me a place that would carry those made for aquariums? Thanks for the info so far guys!
i have read numerous times about ppl using silk plants that they would eventually frail, im not sure which brand or so, but id be carefull and test a few before decorating ur aquarium than later to find them all frailled up in pieces and strings drifting about in the water.
*** read this though, i cant say for sure if its hocus pocus or not.
I've had silk plants in multiple aquariums for awhile now, and not had any issues. I prefer the larger leafed plants because they're easier to clean. I typically get my plants from Michaels and have had pretty good luck.
The worst issue for me is algae accumulation on the leaves, but I only have the lights on for 5 hours in the one tank, and that controls things nicely.
