    I failed miserably at trying to plant my firemouth tank because of the spitting sand. The plants and wood would be covered with sand the day after a tank cleaning. They do love those sand bottom tanks tho.

    As always, great photos.

    It's unreal how much sand these fish move, I agree planted tanks
    are not a good idea with sand sifting fish.
