    Thanks Planter :) The plecs are terrorizing one of my swords currently :evil: I have to say I am not impressed! The barbs leave the plants entirely alone though. Yes the tank is AquaOne dimensions: 71" x 24" x 24" / 180cm x 60cm x 60cm. And I purchased it from MA :) Zoe

    Hello you :) Thanks. I too love the plecs :D But then I'd have to as the little blighters are ruining my echinodorus :roll: I removed approx. 20 leaves today :( Serve me right for not giving them veggies yesterday in the hope they might eat the algea on the front glass instead :shock: Zoe
