Why ghost shrimps are eating my cabomba even if they are well fed?

  1. ZedFishy
    I've a 20 gallon high aquarium. Right now I've 7 ghost shrimps, 6 red eye tetras(recently added), a sailfin molly(male) & 1 molly(male). Red eyes are feisty eaters and they don't let the mollies and shrimps eat pellets. Ghosts started munching on my cabomba and so I started feeding them soaked pellets through straw (Sinking pellets are not available, here). But still it's no use and I am going to return all of them. Also I'd like to add that my cabomba is growing fine.

    Q.1: Should I return the red eyes or the ghost shrimps?
    Q.2: Suggest some colorful fishes(or combinations) that don't pose threat to cabomba and are well suited to 20 gallon high tank. Please suggest keeping in mind that the fast movers may grab all the food from the slow ones.
