Hydrotriche hottoniiflora and rosy barbs

The rosy barbs just discovered how tasty Hydrotriche hottoniiflora
can be. They stripped the pinnate leaves right off of the stem and
ate them. They are not the only ones to enjoy the plant as a similar
situation was occurring in the large tank containing clown and
T-bar barbs, Ameca splendens, and a bala shark. However, this is
the first time that a culprit has been observed. It's unfortunate
as the plant had been doing very well in the moderate light.
