Lucky Bamboo / Freshwater Aquarium
I'm having a hard time finding answers to my questions about lucky bamboo in aquariums. And what I've read doesn't always match.
-- Does lucky bamboo in an aquarium harm fish?
-- Besides taking in water, does bamboo interact with the aquarium in any way? Like, does it affect nitrates/ammonia? Do the fish eat the roots? Etc.
-- Also, what does rotten/sickly bamboo look like?
I realize that lucky bamboo isn't really an aquatic plant. But I have three stalks in my 5.5 gallon cycling tank (with leafed tops sticking out the back). I need to know whether it's alright to keep them there.
