They were actually fine in my planted tank.
Mine loved it. They would hide in bush's of plants and behind driftwood and such.
And come swimming out to each there food.

Meh, my rummynose can go pretty nuts over floating flake. They're such voracious eaters, they bite EVERYTHING that comes in the tank. Snails, droppers, my fingers if I keep them in long enough. Tetras have appetites.

Piranhas get too big for my taste. Especially for this sized tank since I usually like keeping larger schools. I've kept some red bellies before and they became rather boring after they got bigger. They just became lazy and didn't swim as much as they did when they were smaller.

I like the smaller size of these Exodons.

I'm still not good with names on the riparium plants, but here are some closeups.










In tank closup - check out the C. pahang mutated nurii peeking out left center there.

I have a secret man cave.

This tank is actually in my living room, taking the spot of my bigscreen TV.
