Has anyone successfully kept tinfoil barbs with plants? Is this even possible? So far I've found that tinfoil barbs and plants don't mix haha

I don't have tinfoil barbs but found some info on fishchannel.com that might be helpful.

Otherwise, from what i read, people with tinfoil barbs pretty much give up on having planted tanks. I hope that some of the suggestions from the above attachment work out though.

My dad's Tin Foils have eaten some of the following plants that are usually thought to be left alone by Tin Foil Barbs: Amazon Swords, Anubias, Crypts
Only plants that they have totally left alone are Java Ferns.

Thanks guys ! :)

I'll try my luck with some java ferns then thanks!

Oh do you know if any type of java fern will work ? or only the common/basic type seems to be ignored?

I think most types of java will work, new growth may be more tender though, you can tie it securely to driftwood or rocks so they don't push it around too. I kept java fern even in with my Africans.
