Plant ancor?

Anyone got any good ideas for a plant ancor? I was thinking you using a bottom bubble part of a soda bottle, and fill in with some gravel but im not to sure. Any Idvise would be helpful

Like these? Plant Anchors - 12 pk | ThatPetPlace.com

I think they have them at the big chain stores but I'm not totally sure.

No more like the disc ones, they seem to be hard to find.

A 2" stainless steel washer, sorry just a thought I've never used anchors for plants but I have used the washers for driftwood it might work

What kind of substrate do you have? What type of plant is it? All the plants I have stayed put in the substrate without being anchored. Only ones I had a problem with were anubias nana petite but I think that was my bottom dweller's fault. Everything else grew a nice healthy root system.

The substate is Eco Complete Planted Black Aquarium Substrate, I would like to add more but I think I might need to remove all my plants. The plant that wont stay down is Gold Stipe something, cant remember the name right now. Everytime my bn swims near it she bumbs it out of the gravel.
