Unanswered questions, experience shared

Speaking of unanswered questions :-), am I the only one who doesn't
understand why the following was never discussed.  I thought it was
interesting and could only lamely guess at the correct answer.

Neither had my fat, 3-4 inch SAEs, until I put 7 of them in a new 125gal.
with a few other algae eaters and rather forgot how long it had been since
they'd been fed. I took a look at the log when I noticed that the Parrot's
Feather was pretty well stripped. Turns out it had been 41 days. I bet you
could get your SAEs to eat those fine and soft leaved plants if you just
tried hard enough.
