I've been a lurker on this list for a few months and thought I'd surface for
a moment and reply :)  I also had a recent problem with my clown loach
eating plants. After 2 weeks of slowly losing leaves off my jungle vals, I
caught the cute lil bugger 'eating' them. Never got around to posting an ask
to see if anyone had had the problem. Instead, I moved him to a larger
(55g)tank with fewer plants and added a couple of buddies to maybe keep him
occupied. So far no noticeable damage to a couple Amazon swords and misc.

P.S. For $12 I hope they weren't real teeny!
