This is amazing, my mystery snails love bulldozing through my plants, and this keeps the stem plants in place. No more floaties! It gives your plants a chance to root and hold onto the gravel, I always find myself purchasing these so I can keep propagating and getting new plants established.
Normally you get a weight when you buy a bunch plant and they always look gross and are too lightweight once plants get to a certain size. These weights are significantly heavier and make it much easier to keep plants in looser substrates or with fish that can't stop uprooting. I had a yo-yo loach that would unbury all my new plants, and after using a couple of these I was able to keep them stable to develop enough roots to keep them planted. These also look much better, but as a result of their increased weight theyre a little bit harder to bend into certain positions
My order arrived in great shape. The lengths are just right for wrapping around plants and to weight down. I’m glad I’ve added this to my maintenance kit to root long cuttings.
...and I love them! I'm using sand substrate so I was afraid of my ludwigia and myriophyllum floating up, but they're doing great so far and are already showing new growth. Thanks, Aquarium Co-Op, for the excellent service as usual!
