I have gravel in my 5 gallon tank. I have two plant bunches that are hellbent on floating. Can I secure them to the ceramic ring they came in to weigh them down.. can I use a rubber band to secure them?
Sorry - meant to reply to this the other day. In addition to that, other options I've tried for weighing down plants include: * multiple terracotta rings round their base to secure them; * planted into mini terracotta pots filled with sand (+/- a root tab); * secured to decor with cable tie; * attempting to weigh them down with a pebble; * JBL Plantis pegs (probably best if you have soil to secure them into as opposed to sand or gravel).
Hopefully your own suggestions or one of these will help.
