Guppy keeps getting grass stuck in her mouth

Greyfernandes

I added some new dwarf grass into my aquarium and occasionally there's a few blades of grass that float around and one of my female guppies keeps taking a piece of grass and holds it in her mouth for days on end(i think it gets stuck and she cant spit it back out) I eventually have to net her and pull out the blade of grass myself. Im worried she's going to choke on the grass. Is this normal behavior?

I don’t know if it’s normal but I’m not going to judge a guppy for identifying as a cow.

Seriously though guppies are highly vegetarian so you might be able to minimise this behaviour by increasing plant matter in the diet such as chopped blanched vegetables.

That's a great idea I'll try that!
