I agree, they are really cute. However I also have Thai Micro Crabs and Orange Dwarf Crayfish (CPOs) and they are cute, too. But I love my RCS; also bought some Blue Velvets which look great on black substrate.

I got mine for 3.99 like in terms of nutrients they don't really need much I was doing flourish comprehensive and mine thrived. Here is a old picture of mines before i changed my tank. When I pulled it out it had extremely long roots. Usually the stems will try and reach surface but I guess mine didn't want too.

Lovely plant ricefish!
Awesome, I don't really like the root tabs, lol I forget about them. I've got most of my root plants in my npt so no tabs needed. But the banana plant i s in my ten gallon that just has sand substrate.

Banana plants are actually coldwater plants. They are heavy, heavy root feeders so I'd stick a root tab directly underneath them before planting. The bananas will actually rot and fall off once it gets established usually, since the bananas are modified roots that store nutrients for when the plant is dormant.
