Lol. If a plant is "stripped" will it grow back it's leaves? Or the fish pretty much killed it?MTSRandy said:My community tank thinks anacharis is a snack. I had to hide it amongst my background plants just to give it a chance at growing. Throw loose stems in and its stripped bare in an hour or two. Crazy fish! Lol
Looks like it depends on the fishes. ThanksKzibell086 said:my guppys like my crypts and java fern windelov but I thiing that's just them. my oscar loves tearing up all of the other plants
I'm pretty sure these are water spanglesGlamCrab said:I have floating plants (dont know what they are but they were free) my dwarf gouramI keeps snacking on them
In my case, these plants were going downhill until I got the gouramis and they ate parts of it (I think they ate dieing leaves) Now it looks just as healthy as when I got it
my guppies can go through 3 4 inch windelov leaves in around a day if they felt like. And they eat there food I feed them so there not starving or anythingJocelyn Adelman said:My guppies eat nothing my Goldie's on the other hand..,,
As mentioned above, it's mostly goldfish that eat plants and some chichlids that just destroy them. Rarely do other fish/inverts eat healthy plants....
Did the duckweed ever come back? I had a ton of duckweed in my Candy Basslet tank and I hated seeing such an amazing fish covered by duckweed. I removed all of it that I could see but it kept coming back. I started selling it to petco (I'm not lying I live in a rural area, it is a small store and they take forever to get orders in so they usually buy stuff if needed) any way, some dude came in to the store wanting a ton for a goldfish pond. Made over 300 dollars off him but it kept coming backgrantm91 said:I have two tanks I had a load of duckweed growing in one and I used to take it out and put it in my other tank that has 6 silver dollars in every time it got out of hand but in the end I got sick of all the duck weed being everywhere I got it all out and put it in the soil in the garden to rot away the other day, I did enjoy it for a while but in the end I decided it was making my tank look shady and abit dirty.
