hello this the biggest tank i have ever had and i decided to do something new. and i always loved to have some live plants and wanted to do some sort of rock garden like zen theme i went to petco (it's the closest petstore) and bought two bamboo.i did ask all the questions about it and the guy seemed to know what he was talking about so i bought them. they have been in the tank for about 2 days now and seem to be doing fine so are the fish. (they were in the large koi tank)i would like to know if anyone else has done this and was successful with it. this is my first time with any type of live plants here is a quick vid of my tank My new 10gal - YouTube

Are the little bamboo shoots normal, as in the garden, or something special?
