Bamboo Shrimp seem to enjoy when the aquarium gravel or aquarium substrate gets stirred up when re-positioning a rooted plant, and small concentrated bursts of fine food particles get released into the water (but see note about plant fertilizers above). The Bamboo Shrimp actually get really close to the action for what appears to be a feast. Another thing that I’ve noticed is that Bamboo Shrimp seem very active after water changes or a filter media cleaning. When I change or adjust a filter cartridge, small food particles get released back into the aquarium and bamboo shrimp really go to town on it.

I hope everything works out for this bamboo tree. It arrived looking a very pale green. It is our 7th tree purchase, and by far the palest of all previous trees that we have purchased. Hopefully it darkens after getting adjusting to its new aquarium home. The height required me to tip it at an angle, but our frog is already leaning on it with his right hand while he stands and watches the NBA Playoffs. - method to secure the bamboos to the aquarium without using a very thick layer of gravel. hmm...

I am new here and I know NOTHING about bamboo... The reason I am here is because I was wondering if bamboo is waterproof? The reason I ask is because I am building a aquarium set up for a pet turtle.. The land part of the tank I have constructed is made out of rock and pvc piping.. The pvc just does not look natural so I thought wrapping it in bamboo might be a cool idea.. Mind you this would be underwater 24-7.. Any help would be much appreciated!Lucky Bamboo doesn’t require a lot of care to be grown. It can survive for a long time even if kept in poor conditions. The plant can grow well in both water and soil, which is one of the reasons people prefer it as an indoor plant or an office plant. However, it is preferable to grow it in soil as that prolongs its life as well as lead to better overall growth.
Many people prefer to have them grown in small aquariums with the leaves just over the water and the shoots submerged. While this is also possible, it leads to the plant getting rotten pretty quickly.I would suggest presoaking the bamboo first, though you will want to make anything easily removeable from the aquarium to clean off natural algae buildup.there are a few species of true bamboos that gorw in wetlands as emergent, but i don't know that any have been kept in aquariums. most probably grow much much too large.The Lucky Bamboo is one of those plants that do not require a lot of fertilizer to live. Over-fertilization is a common problem in this plant and can cause the leaves to turn yellow. In case that happens, you should be quick to change the water of the plant to prevent any damage. Once your Lucky Bamboo has been over-fertilized, keep it off of any fertilizers for several months.
If you are growing the plant in water, then it is best to fertilize it every two months. Just a little dirty aquarium water can do the trick. If not available, you should use a weak liquid fertilizer in very small quantities. If grown in soil, the process of fertilization is a little quicker. You can do it every month in the same amount and the plant will continue to thrive.When you purchase a Lucky Bamboo arrangement in a pot, you will find it growing hydroponically because it is a water garden plant. There will be gravel of some type which lends stability to the stalks and keeps them from tipping over in the shallow small planter bowls that are often used for the arrangements. The gravel is typically very fine, pea sized; I use aquarium gravel in my arrangements and find that even the colored variety does just fine. I might also add colored glass for a decorative look. This is especially attractive if you use a clear glass vase to hold the arrangement.
