I have pothos cuttings rooting now. Will put in tanks soon. Never thought of bamboo.Thank you so much! The pictures are a few months old so the population has changed slightly but the tank with the Acaras and Severums is a 120 and the tank with the 'Bamboo Forest' is a 75.
The latter is beginning to make me nervous in that they don't seem to stop growing! They are now 3' taller than in this image! Absolutely spectacular nitrate reduction though. I used pothos and inside of 2 weeks, nitrates fell some 70%-75%. But 'Bamboo" is such a profound nitrate sink', I actually bought two test kits in disbelief as after about a month, I can't read any.
These are the Bamboo/Pothos tanks:

The 'bamboo' is supported with a false top made of lighting grid (I did this because my Oscars absolutely destroy any plants I've attempted to plant. They can't move these!
