Hi, I just purchased some bamboo shelters off ebay for my shrimp tank and I was wondering if anyone has any? How do you get it to sink? I tried stacking them and throwing in some substrate inside them for a little more weight but they don't sink. Can anybody help me out?

Thanks in advanced!

I've seen some really neat setups with dead varnished bamboo in an old aquascaping book. I'm surprised I haven't seen any on this forum. Sorry I know that doesn't really answer your question. You just kind of reminded me of something I was going to try out. I think when I set up my shrimp jungle I'm going to give that a stab with some low light plants.

Sorry I currently don't have any pictures because I don't have a camera. Although this is the video the seller placed on his page (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vh4zt1pxV_U&feature=player_embedded). I've been letting it float around my tank and its still not sinking. I have 3 of them in my tank, but I had to sort of bury the bottom portion under the substrate, but it would be nice if I could stack them and just place it above the substrate.

you might want to try tie it to a stainless steel mesh base , both ends bent and anchor it into the subsrate , i have used untreated bamboo as a decor before , but it was place vertical and i just buried it into the subsrate and rock slate to hold it down
