Since you only have a 75 gallon tank, I would that that 2 or at the most 3
algae eaters is enough for your tank.  Otherwise, they will all starve.
This could be why they were going for the fertilizer sticks.  Also try
supplimental feedings 2 or 3 times a week with algae wafers if you do not
have enough algae in the tank.  I have also found that my red-eye pleco
likes fresh spinache.   Find the other ones good homes.

  Good luck.
