Does anyone keep Frontosa with live plants? I've read that a lot of people have had success keeping them together but, my Fronts always strip my plants of all their leaves, then pull the bare stem out of my substrate. Many plants have met this fate! Still, I am determined to find a plant that they don't like the taste of! lol These are well fed fish so I know they aren't hungry. Maybe it's fun! lol Tanganyika doesn't harbor many plants, so I don't want a well planted tank, just a splash of green in a few spots. My first pick was to add some nice vals... they didn't last a night. Maybe if my vals had been larger? Maybe it's just not gonna happen? lol Has anyone else had any success?

Have not tried that one! I will try that!! Thanks!

Edit: Darn! Just read that Bolbitis prefers soft water with pH below 7 or it can develop black spots. The pH in this tank is well over 8.
