Really?????? I've found them to be quite easy going, if active, in my aquarium. I've got several real plants and some stone structure on the bottom with some fake driftwood pieces. I have one dominant male st that likes to swim mid/high tank for about two thirds the tank. but the other five, three more male, two female, seem to be quite ok with it. They are quite active in that they will chase each other around the tank a couple times daily. But with all the plants and other structures, they tend to lose or outrace each other. When started, by water changes, new fish being added or sometimes the vacuum cleaner, they all bunch up in a group with the dominant male swimming in the lead. At night, they tend to gather in a group also. I have a lone betta in there as well as about 12 red cherry shrimp. The st's have never chased then or tried to nip at them. All in all, I find the st's to be a fun, fairly active fish to have.
