Well, the UG that I recently got seemed to be doing well and then my tetras and SAE decided to have a snack. It is still alive but all of the tips are chewed and the chunk floated to the surface. I clipped off the plant portion of a fake foreground plant I had in a closet and it turned into a crossed plant weight -that floats-. So I went outside and gathered 4 small rocks to weight down each end. I figure that because UG grows so thick that it will cover the rocks and "weight". At least if the fish would bite it that the roots will first have a chance to establish themselves. What do you guys think of this? I'll post pics in a little to show more specifically what I mean.
