They're awesome tankmates. They'll fearlessly go after food and it's fun to watch them "jump" when other fish get too close. Best 30 cents you ever spent on a pet.

Just change up your feeding method. Get a petri dish to put the food in. Remove uneaten food after 15 mins. One of the best things about MTS is their ability to self regulate their population.

Very high maintenance. You can tie it down but it wants to float so inevitably strands will break off and start propagating at the surface. Great cover for fry. Beautiful brilliant green as well....

Yeah, that is a platy fry. It's helped cut down on some of the bugs in the tank though as it gets bigger it's intimidating the shrimp.

As you see em on the glass just crush em with your thumb. Their smashed bodies will fall to the substrate and be devoured by the shrimp.

Water sprite will grow into a giant bush that will take over your tank with little plantlets breaking off and floating around. It's an insanely hardy plant.

How in the world did they not boil to death at 98F?? It might have still stressed them enough that they'll have problems down the road so keep that in mind if they start acting strange.

I would suggest getting some MTS to burrow in the sand and keep it aerated. As far as cleaning the bottom, I have some cory cats and loaches that keep mine vacuumed and clean.
