Consider it confirmed. I recently got rid of 4 large angels that
effectively destroyed my Giant Hygro, H. polysperma and mayaca. These
are the first angels I've had that have been serious plant eaters,
that is, ravenous enough to destroy the plant. Mostly, they just nip
the leaves enough, but they grow back faster.
Oh, the angels loved duckweed as well.
