3I have a much cheaper alternativeAug 23, 2014
By Fred from Red Bluff "Fred"
These are great but rather spendy for what you get. Lead is cheap.You get 12 of these nice little weights but all of them combined is 1 once. At $4.65 a pack that translates to $74.40 a pound. For lead! Below is a link to a much lower cost alternative. Its a 1 pound roll of lead fishing weights. You can cut and easily wrap plants or whatever you are trying to sink. I actually took a hammer and flattened them and then took scissors and cut strips that look very close to this product. Best of all its $5.99 for a pound and free shipping with Prime. I hate to be cheap, but I had a lot of plants to sink in my new aquarium. If your loaded with money and/or lazy. Buy these. If you hate to pay $75 a pound for lead, look at the link below

5Keeps Live Freshwater Aquarium Plants In PlaceFeb 13, 2013
By MadCarpenter
These lead strips are the same as the ones that come with many of the live aquatic plants I've purchased from my local fish store. They wrap easily around the stems of hard to contain plants, and help to keep them from floating all over my fish tank.

I've used them quite a few times to group a bunch of cuttings together after pruning some of my fast growing plants (particularly 'rotala', which roots very quickly), and then have brand new plants to help fill up my freshwater tropical aquarium.

1bad for planted tanksJan 13, 2014
By Summer H
I bought these when I first started my tank, but kept having issues with root rot or roots not even forming. I finally did some research and found out they are really bad for plants and stunt the growth of plants. They can also leak toxins into the water. They can also corrode and pieces break off in the gravel.

So what did I do? I made sure I had 2-3 inches of gravel to plant my plants in. I then bought Kuchenprofi 1068002800 Extra-Long 12-Inch Tweezer Tongs in 18/10 Stainless Steel and use them to plant everything. I also use Seachem Flourish Tabs 40 Count under my gravel (placed there by the tongs) to give my plants better nutrition and help them root. My tank is beautifully planted now with about 120-140 stems of Bacopa across the whole back of my 56 gallon tank. I don't need anything to hold them into the gravel. The gravel does the work for me until the stems start to root.

3Need to use more than one on live plantsJun 25, 2013
By Wobbles
These work ok. Easy to wrap around plants like anubias and cryptocorynes. You have to use more than one per plant though. I have as 2-3 on each of my plants.

1They break before they bendSep 09, 2013
By R. W. Rohlin
To use these, you need to bend the bars so you can secure your plant to the substrate, or some other thing in your aquarium. Out of 20 of these anchors, 17 broke when I attempted (ever so slowly and gingerly) to bend them. So they really aren't good for anything. Don't waste your money.
