I can't comment on the vallis as I don't have experience with jungle vale, only spirallis and it never caused me any problems. Your dwarf sag should be fine as should your anubias nana. The only time...

Just wanted to add - although they are breeding it is very slow and I'm not in anyway over-run. They're not a nuisance like the snails they're eating. Mine spend most of their time buried in the sand...

Doing this backwards - completely open to suggestions : )

I've got a lightly planted 29gal that currently houses sterbai cories, guppies and platies. Due to the livebearers there's no wood in the tank to keep it fairly neutral but I feel the plants are...
