I was trying something new with this setup. I didn't like it at first either, but now I like it too :)
I haven't kept them before, but I am planning on getting some soon so have looked into them quite extensively:
They need different foods than most fish as they like to eat snails, and live/frozen bloodworm and brineshrimp etc. They need snails to keep their beaks down. They won't do well on flakes, or probably they won't even eat them. They are very difficult to keep with any other fish, but if you're happy just to have them, then there would be no problems there. They like to have hiding places, so if you added a piece of bogwood or something that would cover it. Once you get them sorted out initially, and are happy with theior feeding, they are easy to keep and tend to be quite hardy as far as I know. Many people here love them as they're really cute, but also have a lot of character.
Let us know what you decide on. :D
