It won't hurt your fish, but "lucky bamboo" (which isn't bamboo at all) will eventually die if kept completely submerged. It is a marsh plant that needs its leaves up in the air. And depending on the type of cichlids you have they may just shred it anyway.

As long as the leaves are out of the water it can survive. We've got it in 2 tanks and it's thriving.
