thats what i did last time i needed to take SAE out of the tank :lol:Some folk.. twisted.. troubled individuals, hehe... that tend to like plants more than fish could suggest upping the CO2 to a suffocating level and net the SAEs gasping for air near the surface... )
Thank you.... I thought I was really out numbered there.... :wink:trenac said:Of course a SAE will start eating on the plants if there is not enough algae in the tank for them to feed on, this is when you need to add algae wafers for them to eat.
The same question has been posed for Loricariidae time and again. Many "reliable" sources assert that plecos are herbivores that are equipped with a sucker mouth solely for the purpose of scraping algae off of rocks, when in reality many species need the amino acids found in meats to thrive. Also, the design of the digestive tracts and the dentitions of some species suggest that they are thoroughly carnivorous.Cavan Allen said:I've wondered if their natural diet includes meaty foods and if any or just too much could be bad for them (somewhat off topic, I know). In other words, is their digestive system equipped to handle it?
