 Dear  Sampath
 
 In  my  planted  tank  i  have  all  the  above  inhabitants  coexisting  peacefully.  The  shrimp  nos  are  increasing  only  day  by  day!  Have  some  other  tetras  as  well.  I  have  not  experienced  any  problem  so  far.

 hi  sampath
 
 i  have  heard  that  densonii  barbs  like  snacking  on  the  softer  (tastier  maybe?)  plants  in  a  planted  tank  but  are  otherwise  quite  fine.  your  woodshrimps  might  make  a  snack  of  riccia  but  are  rather  good  with  anything  else.  otherwise  i  think  you  combination  of  fish  is  great.

 Go  in  for  smaller  sized  fish  if  the  aquascaping  is  to  be  highlighted.  JMO.

 P.  denisoni  is  going  to  outgrow  your  tank  and  snack  on  any  fine  leaved  plants.

 Make  sure  your  denisonis  are  not  starved.  I  went  on  a  10  day  vacation  and  came  back  to  my  Taiwan  moss  completely  snacked.  Someo  f  the  other  fineleaved  plants  were  spared  though!!

 Hi  sampath
 The  denisoni  ,  congo  tetra  and  all  the  other  fish  will  co  exist  with  no  problem,
 Like  Beta  said  the  denisoni  ,  congo  tetra  will  out  grow  your  tank  real  quick,  also  both  the  fish  get  spooked  for  the  smallest  things  and  are  super  jumpers.
 
 The  ideal  tank  size  for  both  these  fish  is  4'  and  above.
 
 Your  wood  shrimp  will  never  multiply  in  this  tank  even  though  they  breed  very  fast  as  all  the  fish  will  be  having  a  good  snack  of  the  fry.
 
 Try  and  grow  moss  of  any  kind  in  the  bottom  of  the  tank  this  will  keep  the  shrimp  safe.
 
 Rgds
 Mayur
