    Hey i was wondering if bananas are safe for darts??? i dont have any darts right now, but i plan on getting tincs in the future. anyways, i've found some banana plants for $4.99 ea. and was wondering if they are safe. i plan on using them in a little "banana grove" on one side with a waterfall with a river going to a small pond on the other side.

    Do you mean the type of plant a banana comes from? or some other plant.

    If you do in fact mean a banana plant (as in one that could produce bananas) they are perfectly safe for use with animals, however, fitting them in an aquarium will be tricky and short-lived, as they not only grow fast, but grow big too.

    You could try Heliconias they are related to bananas, but grow as a bunch or creeping root system. The care is about the same but many species are smaller than three foot. Their is one smaller banana still about 3 feet it goes by the trade name "Truly Tiny".
