I've tried it but it turns to mush, probably because at the time I was heating the tank for clown loaches. Also anything that floats clogs up my filter intakes. I've decided its a lot easier to admire others planted tanks and leave mine bare.

My 4 footer got to that stage and I've finally convinced myself that plastic plants aren't THAT bad! :lol:
It looks quite nice with them in it and in the wet season I go to the billabongs at the back of our place and get live plants to mix it up a bit.

My little Kribensis male died today. He had Dropsy. (bloated like a toad fish and his scales started to stick out) I put him in the hospital tank but I couldn't save him. :cry:
I know when they got this disease there is not much you can do, but I like to give them the chance...

Sorry to hear about your little male. :( I remember being heartbroken when I lost my male Pearl Gourami to a velvet outbreak in my 65 gal.

Sorry to hear Ragtatter, it's always sad. Don't laugh, but most of my fish that died got a burial in the veggie-garden.
Trefoil, from what I've heard Dropsy, while they are alive isn't contagious but when they die remove them straight away as other fish start eating or nibbling on the dead one and they might get it that way.
