Yes I do. Some hitched a ride on a plant like a small cory cat that appeared
not long ago. Featherfins, SAE's, shrimps, cory's, AF cichlids, pleco's,
eyeing some neat new blood tetra's, rummy noses, Otto cats etc.
Looking to add some more fish too. I'm finally quite conservative, slow to
move and picky on the fish I add to a tank. Fish Nirvana has been achieved:)
Hardness is certainly not the issue for any sword plant. Look elsewhere for
a solution.
