    the tank is 36x15x15 powered by an 802 powerhead with filter attachment, the decor is rocks iv’e found and bought from the garden centre and the plants are javamoss and fern.

    they are good looker plaamoo but they have a sting in the tail all the same, wether it’s just a male thing but they attack other fish in the tank and have killed a few of my G scitulus before i found out it was him.
    Mark had found the same thing happening in his rivertank as well, so be warned mate they maybe cute but a bit of caution needs to be taken.

    Matt the fasciata is the last pic mate, you can’t call them plants mate, they’re indestructable i’ve had barbs crop them to nothing and they still grew back, what other plant would do that mate.

    Thanks for the warning Mick, good to know. I really don’t like that sort of behavior in my tanks(if I can avoid it?) no matter how good looking the fish. I’ve lost several gastros in my RT and I suspect it may have something to do with the sewellia.

    As for the java fern being indestructable, not in my tanks. I can’t grow them! I buy nice big ones and they just slowly die off. At best the dying leaves produce tiny plantlets that stay tiny a scraggly. There’s something missing in my water.
