    I love how these guys look, though I have some questions about them

    1. Can they be kept with fish(i have angelfish and neon tetras, though I'm not a huge fan of the tetras)

    2. How big do they get? some sites say 1 inch, some say 3 inches

    3. What would be a good hiding place for one? I have a Smallish(about 4 inches) ceramic "cichlid stone". would that be OK?

    4. Will they eat my plants? I have java moss, java fern, Mare's tail(kind of like elodea/anacharis), and another stem plant which I forget the name of right now.

    5. Can I keep more than one in a 29 Gallon/110 Liter tank with 3 *small* angelfish?

    Thanks in advance for the help!

    I do have them in the past. They don't really prey fishes just that sometime if those small fish pass by them, they would try to nib them and well if they success . .. . . . . .

    I will not recommend them with newly planted plant as i plant HC before and they keep uprooting them...

    And finally they will not be a very friendly neighbour, try to keep them about 20G 1 CPO. They are very pretty and nice to keep with. Adapt quite well. PH is about >7.2
