Tetras eating Anubias?!

    Hi there, I'm looking at getting Diamond and Congo tetras and I've heard they like to eat Anubias. Just wondering if there is anyone out there that have these tetras, and that haven't eaten their Anubias. Id like to attempt aquascape with this plant so was hoping that there is a chance they won't eat them. Or is there any other plant that will attach to a rock or driftwood that will have dangling roots? :)

    I don't have those tetras but anubias is pretty hardy. The leaves are tough, relatively thick, and waxy so I'm not sure how much damage they'd actually do to it. I don't have any experience with them though :)

    I'm wondering what size tank you will be putting these fish in. I love Congo tetras but they get large, 5 or so inches and are very boisterous when grown.

    I didn't notice them eating my plants, they never stopped zipping around long enough, lol.

    Ooh, I'd like to see that tank when it's set up! I had 8 congos in a 55 gallon and once grown, they took over the whole tank. They are beautiful though. Have fun...
