other than using pots, add more gravel and bury them deeper, bury each bit on its own and not in groups, you can also buy lead weights to wrap around the bottom of the plants to weigh them down, choose plants with roots.

all will help.

I don't like the weights, not because they are lead, but they can squash the plants stalks, but they are safe (the ones you buy at the fish shop), my mother used them for years, and when I inherited her tanks I foung about a hundred of them mixed into her gravel, I removed all the ones I found, but I still find them every so often.

but in one of those tanks I have a 15 year old talking catfish, so I guess they must be safe.

yeah, it has made a full recovery, that was when it was behaiving oddly by just lying around in random places, well it is back to hiding with its head in a rock.

I nearly lost it again a month or two again, when I had a disaster in my tank, it was found floating at the top of the tank and could hardly move, so I moved it into a differant tank and it hardly moved for 2 days then got better.

now it has more of an appitite than ever before, and it is doing great!

it is about 4-5" but it is very fat, it usually only comes out for food late at night, and it likes catfish pellets, algea wafers and sinking catfish disks.
and I add them every night, but it doesn't always come out and get any.
