I have never had my clowns take one bite of my plants although they will check them out for fallen bits of food. What I did have problems with was having them bulldoze them up out of the gravel until they were firmly rooted. I solved that problem by putting rocks on the plant bases(where the roots are) until they were rooted. and some here have heard the tale I told about putting plant tabs under my plants then the clowns dug every last one of them up. I guess they thought I was hiding food from them LOL.

HI that sounds onioning having to change your plants all the time .Do you put veggies in for them because mine love courgette, and that might take there minds off your plants.

Maybe that's why mine don't eat or even nibble my plants because I too feed them veggies.
