They swim all over the tank but when I remove the fake floating bamboo grass for water changes and cleaning (sand) they dart for cover of crypt and anubia which is growing from driftwood. I also have fake plants along the back glass that go from substrate to the surface and the fish hide there as well while tank maint is performed. My plan is to take these fish that were a gift from one of the ladies in the office home to largertanks once they get some size on them and outside temp is more suitable for transport. I would try to add as much plants alive ,or fake, to the tank and see if they don't come out to explore a little more. Your water parameters appear to be in order just mind your water and fish will do the rest.
Yes, well I have fake ones. Yes, im 90% sure my water is ok, just water temp is a concern and I will be sure to add a few more plants.
