Dwarf gourami eating plants leaves

Rgtx

Anyone had any luck preventing or mitigating dwarf gourami appetite for plants leaves? My DG has basically left my alt Reinekii looking like sticks in the last several weeks and it's annoying since it's was one my thriving plants and fave. I feed the fish algae wafers daily and sometimes twice a week I'll throw in some zucchini but it really hasn't matter for his appetite for leaves. Any suggestions?

Feeding it some vegs as coocked / blanched spinach / lettuce?

I'll try that, how often should I feed them veggies? Every other day fine?

I'd start with 2 times a week or so and see if the planteating stops.

I'd feed some algae flakes as well ?

Yes when I remember to, I throw zucchini twice a week but generally I've done it once a week. Other foods I feed is new spectrum algae Max and hikari algae wafers which I alternate every day. Wonder why he all of a sudden have appetite for leaves since this is fairly new behavior for him.

No, he occasionally tries to built a bubble nest with plants that get uprooted. He's definitely eating the leaves.
