| | Cherry Barbs Eating my APONOGETON CRISPUS
I just bought 3 APONOGETON CRISPUS 3 days ago and my Cherry Barbs are eating them. They don’t touch any of my other plants (anacharis, nana anubias, dwarf hairgrass, red tiger lotus, dwarf onions…). The guy at the LFS said the leaves may die off then return is this what’s happening and my Cherry Barbs are just helping me out (although other than the “chew” marks the plants look great), or are they especially fond of this plant?
Another thing I was thinking is perhaps there’s something they’re missing in their diet and maybe I need to get then some plant based food. Right now I’m feeding them a variety of things; Omega One Freshwater Flakes, Wardley’s Brine Shrimp and Tubifex Worms. Any suggestions would be great.
