Annoying Rosy Barbs

mxnewss

My Rosy Barbs continue to eat my Cories and my mystery snails cucumber. Whenever my snails go near the cucumber the rosy barbs will peck them, and the rosy barbs just chase the Cories away. When they first started eating it, t was cute, now it's just straight up annoying and becoming a problem

Have you tried distracting the barbs with food as the cucumber makes its way to the bottom?
Why not put enough cucumber for them all?

Rosy barbs tend to be the type of fish to take over all the cucumber pieces, even if they cannot finish it all. They will fiercely guard it and not let a single other type of fish come near it. By the time they have decided they are done eating cucumber, all the other creatures have lost interest in the food.

Koiman So there's no way to put enough for all the fish..?
