Lots of folks are keeping them in planted tanks.  Gabriella Kadar up in 
Toronto puts a pair or trio in a planted 55-gallon community tank, and petty 
much ignores them.  Some of the fry will pick enough protozoans and stuff 
from the plants to survive without any attention from her.  She thins the 
herd once in a while, and it works really great.
