I have a convict tank with plants, though I wouldn't call it "planted".

Basically there is a mass of java moss which they constantly move around. The pair of adults in the tank arrange the moss according to some master plan, and their babies (growing up fast) hide in the moss.

They are pretty interesting to watch, because of the intensity with which they garden their little world.

I've had some sucess with them. Haven't actually witnessed them paying any attention to the plants really. They might take a nip here and there but that's it.....for now
