Wow.  They ate Anubias?  That's weird.  I once had a
Parotocinclus spilosoma that ate Anubais leaves, but I
didn't think tetras were capable.  

I feed my tetras a plant based flake, but they still
do it.  They're awfully rowdy at feeding time too.  I
would like to get something more sedate.  I have some
killies and dwarf croaking gouramies that I have to
feed with a turkey baster, and now that the tetras
have figured out that food comes out the bottom (after
2 years), getting food to them is a problem.  

Thanks, Cavan
