 Has  anyone  kept  severums  in  a  planted  tank?
 
 Can  we  keep  them  in  a  planted  tank.  Most  sources  on  the  internet  say  they  are  destructive  to  plants,  but  I  would  like  to  know  if  it  is  practically  possible  to  keep  them  in  a  planted  tank  as  I  have  seen  some  videos  on  net.

 the  plants  u  have  seen  in  the  vids  with  severums  are  mostly  various  varieties  of  Anubias  and  Ferns,  even  the  ferns  have  a  chance  of  being  ripped  apart.
 Best  is  to  keep  them  in  a  non  planted  tank.

 they  will  rip  everything  apart,  the  max  size  they  can  tolerate  plants  is  about  1.5-2"  after  that  all  plants  will  be  ripped
