Can anyone recommend a specific product (preferable on Amazon if possible) that will seal and waterproof bamboo poles that's aquarium safe? I had bamboo in an aquarium in the past and it was a mold magnet.

It might be easier and cheaper to buy some lucky bamboo's. They are not real bamboos but stalks of the Dracaena. Looks great in the aquarium. Just the top leaves need to be above water.

Lucky "bamboo" is a nice alternative as posted. Will also absorb some nitrates :)

Why bamboo in the tank?

I'm visualizing a little tiki bar with fish sitting on stools..
