do plecos eat plants?
do plecos eat plants? I think that mine have discovered the tender leaves of
my plants. I have two Amazon swords and two plecos about 3" and 4". It
seems that they have eaten the outer layer of the leaves and left the leaves
transparent-ish. Are there any other fish that I can trade these guys in for
that will only eat green algae off the glass and not touch the plants? I
know about oto cats, but they aren't at my local fish stores and I know that
they aren't very hardy. I want hardy algae-eating only fish. Also, these
plecos are really pretty. Is there any way I can prevent them from eating
the plants? I fed them algae wafers, but my zebra danios pick up on that. I
give zuchini slices (boiled until they sink) as well (zebras don't touch
that) but they go right back to the plants too.
Thanks in advance.
