Are these ok in a planted tank ?...someone has just mentioned that they can decimate plants but it's the first i've heard of it.

I've got a shoal of now four rather elderly Congo tetras. Had them since they were little and they've always been in planted tanks. I have never seen them do anything other than nibble the odd leaf when they haven't been fed over holidays or something.

They're great fish for a bigger tank, but I have to say with my three foot tanks I wouldn't buy any more - they really want more space, IMHO. 4 foot plus. Gorgeous fish though with their ragged fins.

Never heard off any problems with these other than when they get to a good size they can eat any small algae shrimps etc. I.e. The big fish eating the small fish sceanaio.
