Who is eating my plants?!

calebringabell

I recently got these fish and something is munching away what seems to be dead or algae covered plant matter… but it almost feels like it’s getting out of hand

Siamese algae eater
ramshorn snails
6 angelfish
2 gold gouramis

I didn’t have this problem prior to these new fish.

Snails and SAE both eat algae and dying leaves, don't know about healthy leaves..

True SAE will not eat plants (I have had a few); but there are fishes that look like SAE that will eat plants.

What kind of plants do you have? I love SAEs and have kept them for years, but they do sometimes eat some types of plants like mosses.

Otherwise, I would suspect your plants may not be doing so well, because (as Nopsu said) the snails (and possibly some of the fish) typically only eat the plants after they are already dying.
