goldfish are notorious for it.

all the plants stay down apart from one bunch which I have a nail tied to to weight it.
All my fish are small and can't uproot the plants

Added a flower pot today, the tiny bubbles streaming out of it as it settled looked cool so got a vid, doesn't really show it all that well though.

6 Red Honey Gouramis moved in today. After some settling period they got used to it and find the bubble stream and taller plants fascinating!
(the tetras seem to be getting very excitable in the mornings too, dancing in pairs)

These are my 2 tanks. I couldn't get a decent pic of the first one as there's a burned tube and the other one is almost towards the end of it's life. I'm waiting for some LED strips to see if they're any good for the plants before buying some new tubes. Sorry for the dark pic

Agreed!

Is that sand on top of gravel in the 2nd tank?

Thanks guys. It's Argos sand over regular potting compost, really cheap substrate!
