Well after I added some Alternanthera reineckii to my tank and my 4 clown loaches nearly tore it to shreds, they moved on to my Hydrocotyle leucocephala which they previously hadn't touched and now I'm wondering: will I need to rethink my fish stock?
What are other people's experiences with fish and what eats plants and what doesn't?
I currently have:
4 small clown loaches
2 small Boesmani Rainbows
3 Bala Sharks (2.5")
2 Gold Gouramis (3")
15 Ghost Shrimp
I love the loaches and don't want to give them away (if I even can). Is there anything I can do to stop them eating my plants? Has anyone kept clown loaches in a planted tank successfully?
I've also heard Bosemani's and some other Rainbows may or may not eat plants. Is this true?
