I just put my gourami's in my 20 gallon tank two days ago to keep the cycle going. I noticed last night one had a bit of fissiden in it's mouth. I looked this morning and my fissiden is gone!

Stupid fish.

A lovely little moss like plant. Much prettier than java.

I really hate the gourami's now!

You just can't win Hobbs. Sorry, it looked like a really nice plant.

Lady, once again I have to say, I wish your luck with things surprised me. You probably have the ONLY gouramis who would eat that plant. I think you have a curse somewhere in your past! :ezpi_wink1:

Hobbsy,
It ate it because, like all microvorus or carnivorus fish, they need some greens in their diet. He ate it because he needed the nutrition. If you start mixing spirolina flakes with their food and/or frozen foods for herbivors it'll keep him from having to chomp on your plants.

Grumble, grumble... within 2 weeks my riccia feature was no more... <sniff> I also thought they might need some veg so bought Spirinula flakes just to have them spat out with disgust and dirty looks from the Rams <sigh> They leave all other plants completely alone...

Odd these gourami's ate nothing but this plant. They don't touch the other moss. Maybe it's sweeter tasting.
