The two stars is because they didn't devour my plants in their short life.

They're known to be very difficult to acclimate and keep alive longer than a month.
Acarichthys heckelii 4 Stars
Beautiful fish, really interactive, always sifting through sand. Only negative is, and this is probably just because he was introduced last, he gets shoved around by my severum a lot. I wish he'd stick up for himself a little more so I don't have to keep going to the glass and shooing away my severum. I'm planning on a rescape though that'll break up any territories formed so hopefully he'll earn his extra star.
