Yes, they are very good in planted aquariums:  they don't dig, they don't
tear plants, they don't eat plants (except some duckweed and frogbit
every now and then) and they don't harass other fishes.  Only problem
with them is that they get big and are very actice, and so they need a
big tank to live in.
