This guy loves being in tall long leafed plants. When we had him in a 10 gallon we had all sorts of plants growing and he would do a loop from the top of the tank to the bottom of the plant and then would rest in the plant almost like he was a leaf himself. Now with the 29 gallon and inadequate lighting for plants he has resided to the fake yellow plant you see behind him. Deffinetly a very graceful fish, and non aggresive towards the other fish in the tank.
