Mixing plants within different tanks

by billy_corycat

Are there any reasons not to mix plants in different tanks? Like say if I have a plant that's doing really well in one tank and I want to take clippings and introduce it into another tank, would that be a bad idea? I presume that if all the fish appear to be in good health than there wouldn't be any issue, but I wanted to check first.

I think it should be okay unless you have reason to believe your fish could have disease/parasites. E.g. if you've recently gotten new fish I wouldn't do this in case they could have something, but if you have had all your fish for awhile and nothing seems out of the ordinary with them than I would go ahead.
