    I don't know of any small ones. Most all get about 5" but the Red Hooks and they get larger.

    Not sure who's the smallest, but one thing for sure, they WILL eat ALL your plants. I've had larger species of sd that were always keep w/ plastics, and they would periodically rip the fake plants apart just to mess w/ me!

    Onion plants, java moss, java fern they will not. Not sure about anibus but I would think they would. They may leave cryts alone but not sure on that either. I always fed mine a huge lettuce leaf each day. Veggies are their main diet and they need it.

    I've not kept mine with plants but understand they do nip at them. Mine have never gotten and veggys for food but get fed cichlid food with lots of spirulina in it. I can only say that mine certainly do not need veggys as they are larve,active and quite healthy. As for sizes there are only 2 types I know of ,the red hooks get very larg and the ones like I have get about 4 to 5 inches.

    I added a crinum natans (similar to onion plant) and a larger anubias which I tied to driftwood just about 3 weeks ago to a tank with silver dollars and so far so good. Not even a nibble yet. But I'll still be watching daily in case they start in on them and if so, I'll pull them out and plant elsewhere.
