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.

    Can I put a pothos plant inside my tank? In the water with the fish?

    I bought one from stop and shop and was hoping to propagate it, possibly for my aquariums but mostly for my crested gecko. I posted in a fb group that idea and was told that I can't use stop and shop/regular store plants because it could be mislabeled and actually be a toxic plant that is going to kill my pets and possibly me. I personally think people tend to freak out where it is really unnecessary and think that if I clean a pothos well enough and propagate them (by clipping and growing them out hanging out of vases) for about a month that there isn't really any real threat, but wanted to get another opinion. Would you say Stop and Shop plants would be safe for this?

    My fish must think it's a salad buffet. They have eaten mine. I have 1 pearl scale, 1 ranchu, and 4 orandas. I can't figure out the culprit is. Every day I see a half eaten leaf just floating at the top of my aquarium. Next time I'll just stick them in like you did.😂😂😂😂

    I have a heavily planted tank for my elephant ear betta he loves his plants but soon I’ll be switching from HOB to sponge filter which when I remove the HOB filter there will be a big gap could I use pothos to cover that up to prevent him from jumping or is there another way to cover up the gap cuz I really don’t wanna buy another lid

    excellent video, good knowledge, it's great for nitrate, its a easy mistake to think a regular filter will reduce nitrate, they wont they will convert ammonia and nitrite to nitrate, doesn't matter how big or how much filtration you have, none of the filters will get rid of nitrate unless specific media inside for this job, water changes are the number one way to reduce your nitrates, its the most annoying part of the hobby especially if you have 8 tanks haha, but its part of keeping things on track.. Pothos is i'd say the number one natural way to reduce nitrate but careful in a planted tank as you may find that the pothos uses so much your other delicate plants will suffer, so keep your eyes on it :) i recently got a pothos planter sump going and its reduced the levels dramatically.

    That is not golden pothos. It’s a common variegated pothos. Golden pothos is yellow in colour like gold

    Pothos works great in all my tanks. It eats nutrients greedily and is my most effective filtering plant. They look great and are easy to keep going for a lifetime.

    Pothos has been amazing for my tank. I have a 10 gallon tank and I used to have to do water changes allot every week. Now, I can go 2 to 3 weeks between a change and the fish are thriving!!

    My pothos has been so healthy that I've been able to take cuttings from those original starts and plant them for friends 😊

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

    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 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?
