Re: wandering jew / purple heart in my tank ??
I agree with Kay--roots only. Also you hear alot about people keeping things in betta
bowls but that is not a good thing to go by. #1 bettas shouldn't be kept in bowls, #2 there are a lot of non-aquatic plants advertised with fish--example: lucky bamboo, that should not be kept in aquariums. The problem with keeping a non-aquatic plant in your tank until it dies is that is effects your water quality as it dies so it could really screw up your parameters before you even know it is dying. I personally would not put it in my tank.
10 tanks running. 8 of which holding species of wild betta. Macrostoma, Ocellata, Pallifina, Gladiator, Patoti, Falx, channoides, edithae, and Enisae.
