HI
I have a tank with three rosy barbs and two otto cats. The tank has quite a few plants in it. Recently I have added some microsword(I think that is what it is called, it is like thick bladed grass) I am having trouble getting it to stay in the substrate. I am not sure if the fish are messing with it or if it is just coming loose. How much can I bury it? Will it live if it is floating on the top?

Shotgun's way works well..
I just use lead, I get it from my LFS.. Like with the paperclip wrap it around the rootball.

I keep micro swords as well.. After a few weeks they will be well anchored and will start to make side shoots.. Iv never had a problem with them floating since i initially planted them.

Thanks for the input. This plant does not really have a rootball. It has very small roots and is almost a straight line of grass. Maybe I could work with weights anyway. The metals wont taint my water at all?

Try superglueing some rocks on them.
