    Hello, I was wondering what the best fake plant to put in my fishtank. My fishtank is under 10gallons. Last night when I looked into my fishtank I saw something floating. I wondering what is that? But when I got closer it was just my plant that floated up. Then I coudln't find my goldfish. Then I noticed he was tankled up in the plant. I untankeled him and he was dead. Before he died another of my goldfish died of Ich. I have one goldfish left and I dont want him to get straigled in the plant. I took out the plant just in case it happens again. So what plant is the best for my fishtank.

    oh, alrite...if thats what happened, u can buy little weight things to hold plants down....that or you can get a little rock and rubber-band the plant to it to keep the plant from floating.

    Hi Ellie,
    The real culprit here is the 10 gallon tank. I'm afraid that 10 gallons just isn't enough water for even one goldfish. They are not a beginner fish and are more suited to live in ponds outside. The plant didn't kill the fish, it was the lack of water and water quality. Hopefully you are running some type of hang on the back filter and doing regular water changes of 40 or 50 percent. Try to keep the water clean and don't overfeed.
