I have 6 SD's and they are the Biggest thing in the tank (about 4"). I just bought them and put them in about a week ago, so I'm figuring that they are still stressed out. Plus I have a small amount of ammonia in the tank <.25 so maybe that's doing it too. I have been doing a 40% WC everyday for the last 3 days to keep that down. They have become more "brave" in the last 2 days. But still hide most of the time. I'm pretty sure they will start to swim around like normal pretty soon.
I'll consider getting some of these pennywort plants to see how it goes. What kind of special things do I need to grow these, I have no co2 or anything, just some nice lights.

How many SDs do you have? They can be skiddish if kept in small groups. And/ or larger tank mates can do that to them as well if you have any?
