I'll remove him if he starts acting sick. I'm hesitant to do that now because they have such a difficult time acclimating to new tanks and I'm afraid moving him will make him worse. Is there anything...

My concern is that they ARE picking at the substrate. I'm not sure if that is because they are new to the tank and don't know where to "catch" food or if they cannot find enough to eat.

I got little brown snails one time, I assume from a plant. I only ever saw them in my eheim filter when I cleaned it. I have no idea who ate them in my tank, but they did not survive long.

Does removing the paint only work with glass tanks, or can you scrape it off acrylic, too? In general, acrylic and razor blades don't mix.

There is no diagonal bracing, only the shelf in the center to brace the legs. I wonder if I could add bracing? I need to tear that tank down soon, and I could add it then.
