I have never had a planted tank, so I dont know anything abt planted tanks, but last time i kept denisonii in a tank with full of big rocks collected from railway tracks and one driftwood. They seemed very happy in that setup and grew very large. anyone who has kept these fishes in a planted setup, pl share your views...

If that is the case thn you shoukd change the topic name nd remove 'Biotope' from it.
Biotopes r nt easy to set up nd maintain, its advanced level stuffs, u need to keep everything same as nature including water parameters, temp, vegetation, terrain, etc. Also when applicable tides r to be maintained too. So bttr change biotope from the heading, its misleading.

Name of some fish sp. share the same habitat. Also mentioning their IUCN Status for "you know what"......

Pristolepis marginatus (Malabar Leaf Fish) Vulnerable
Amblypharyngodon melettinus (Silver Carplet) Data deficient
Sperata aor (Long-whiskered catfish/Indian Shovelnose Catfish) Data deficient

Etroplus maculatus (Orange Chromide) Low risk least concern
