I recently helped put a 155 bow front together for a friend/client. He's
going to move it soon also. He has em in there now doing quite well and the
tank grows plants very well. They are not easy and you will spend a lot to
keep a few. Most die. It's not the planted tank's fault though it seems.
Maybe later after there's some tank raised around. Let your LFS or dealer
hold them for a month first...........if they live then get them. They seem
very hard to keep overall. I would expect to lose many to have a small
school of five to seven.
I wouldn't imagine MH's really bug them nor does bright lights. He has a lot
of PC's on there. As long as they have somewhere to hide(mossy cave, big
sword plant etc) they are fine. They seem more afraid of people than light.
