I had to take all the Bamboo shoots out of the tank. Unfortunetly they looked really good but they held all the grim and cereated alot of bateria build-up, the tank always seemed cloudy and hazey. I put the Bamboo into a vase. Now my tank looks very bare, I will now have to go out and buy some more plants to make the tank look full. Oh well nothing ventured, nothing gained.I think I will try some pieces of wood to give some character to the tank. we will see how things will work. I will keep you posted.
