How to Use a Pothos Plant in your Aquarium.

  • Yayınlanma Tarihi:  2 yıl önce
  • Using a Pothos plant in your aquarium. The Pothos plant can be found in most garden centers and also stores like Home Depot and Lowes. We decided to use it primarily to help lower the nitrate levels in our Goldfish tank and it has certainly done the job. We take cuttings from the Pothos plant and add it to the HOB filter once it get bigger we put the roots into the tank. ** The pothos plant is toxic for some animals such as cats and dogs.

    Where I live the nitrate level is 20ppm plus out of the tap so I am considering these now.

    Lucky bamboo is used in this way as well.

    Pretty sure the pothos I'm using is broken. About a month ago I put a small cutting in my Moor tank, while the roots haven't grown yet, it is growing leaves.
    Weirdly, the two lucky bamboos I also have in there have grown new roots.

    I have two aquariums one in the kitchen the other in the bedroom. The one in the kitchen is a 10g, 55g in the bedroom. I’ve had Pathos in both tanks for two years. Both tanks are planted and borderline overcrowded. I’ve attached the Pathos to under the cabinets, which I had prior to the plants I had installed leds for additional lighting in the kitchen. I have the one in the bedroom growing toward my window.once it reaches the window I will have it grow up and down vertically until window is full. So keep in mind while the plant is getting nutrients it will do even more if it has adequate lighting.

    I bought Rana temporaria frog eggs 4 days ago, they're tadpoles now. Do you think that it would be beneficial to put one in there?

    I use it in my Female Betta tank. She has a bigger tank than my Male Bettas but in just a week her water was BROWN. I did not understand because she is smaller than the boys and more water. So I took my pothos and planted it in her tank. She absolutely loves it and brown water is no more and it has been two weeks. I just did a water change yesterday because it was time and the was was CLEAR. Pothis are amazing. I recommend! One thing I started doing is taking the water from the Male Betta tanks that I removed for a water change and use it for my new Marble Queen Pothos that my great grandmother mailed me. They recovered instantly and they are absorbing the nutrients from the water. It's a wonderful way to give them nutrients without any chemical fettilizers and also lowers the amount of wasted water because you are reusing the fish's "dirty" water to feed your pothos. :)

    I use pothos for my 55 gallon aquarium and I have 5 growing. I have an18 inch planter box above the aquarium. I pump water into one side and it enters back into the aquarium on the other side. I've had them for over 6 months and they are growing well but my nitrates are still off the charts high. I have 2 canister filters and I do about 30% water change once a week. I tried plants in the aquarium but my African cichlids destroyed them. I feed once a day and they eat the food within a minute or two.

    Not sure what else I can do to lower my nitrates not just dilute them. I just ordered Algone and I'm hoping this will work. Any suggestions?

    can the Pothos plant be submerged in the water? and have the roots underneath the rocks?

    In terms of putting pothos in with my other (edible) plants in my aquaponic aquarium, would this make my herbs toxic to eat?

    You didn't need the roots? I have seen other videos but they add the roots. Are the roots going to grow properly?

    The pothes plant can be grown in a vase with rocks and water, to use in tank I took off all the leaves and put the stem in the bottom of tank and new leaves will grow under water and not rot

    I have heard a lot about this plant & I was surprised when I got one from a friend at the bank today so
    I don't have no planted tanks & I have just guppies, the pothos I got is the same as what you have here the golden.

    I use plants, often pothos in place of filters for small tanks and my pond. I only have small fish like guppies etc, snails and shrimp though. I dont test the water, just add or take plants based on the algae levels. I live in a warm humid tropical environment so mine are kept outside where natural light is ample 👍🏼🇦🇺☺
