Mine are pretty good at stealing tubifex worms when I feed them (I used the
freeze-dried cubes suspended in the water by a teflon wire). Between that
and the algae they find they have been growing pretty well since I got them
about a year ago now from the very source you mention.

I do occasionally drop in one of Tetra's "tabimin" pellets, but the pleco
usually finishes it off way before the SAEs find it.
