More large groups of killifish in planted tanks.

What is the conventional wisdom against this?  I'm just starting to
look at killies.

There are over 700 species of killies already named and several hundred more known. Out of those, there are surely some good plant tank inhabitants. Unfortunately, some are territorial and meaner than cat dirt. Others are so reclusive you cannot enjoy seeing them. Just pick your species with care, and Richard's suggestion is an excellent one.

I am particularly fond of a school of Lampeyes in a planted tank.
