I am old-school, starting back in to the hobby after over a decade away. I wanted to try everything new-school, including planting directly in the substrate without lead weights. So far so good for many plants, but some plants just don't want to stay down, despite best efforts. These particular lead weights are perfect. They are heavier (thickness) than the ones that come with store bought plants = I cut these Aquarium Co-Op lead strips in half and am able to keep down a few stems of plants, without crushing them. Perfect. -- Lead weights??? Lead weights!!! -- And these lead weights are the best!
Just what I needed. As always Aquarium CoOp came thru for me. Great product & a good price.
So hard to find these anywhere. They are very flexible and easy to bend around the base of stem plants to keep them in place in my aquariums. Will probably have to buy more since I've already used all 10.
I looked for a product like this at all the pet stores near me and even asked the employees for help. No one carries any near me. These were super simple to work with and solved all my issues with plants that simply will not stay put. 10/10 would buy again and again.
This is the second time I've purchased this product. I am definitely pleased with it. Helps keep plants down like some anubias when I can't lodge them on wood. Helps if I want them between some spaces in the rocks that are a little loose.
