    I was wondering how balas would do in my new planted tank. I just want to know if they will destroy the plants. the plants I am going to have are Brazilian penny-wort, onion plant, elodea (anacharis), giant hygrophila, valisneria, amazon sword, cryptocoryne, and dwarf hair-grass. my main concern is the Giant hygro. and despite being new here I am not new to the hobby!

    welcome to fishlore!!
    they shouldnt bother them :)
    but they need a huge surface/middle area for swim space so keep that in mind with the taller plants

    Thank you! :;hi1
    yeah I know, I am planning on planting mainly the back and sides leaving plenty of room in the middle for them to swim.

    Welcome to fishlore. :)
    I know this has nothing to do with the plant question, but would you mind my asking how many you have, and which tank they are in?

    Thanks Meenu
    I don't have any, I am just planning a new tank and was just trying to figure out if they would be alright with the plants
