    Default Will Firemouths eat plants?

    0 Not allowed!
    I have some firemouths who are still pretty small and I was wondering if they would eat plants if I decided to lightly plant the tank they are in. From what I have found it seems like they won't but I have found a few people who have said they do. So in your experience will firemouths eat plants? P.S. yes I know they dig, if they dig up the plants I will put them in pots or put rocks around the base. Though the firemouths I have don't seem to so much as dig as lightly sift though the top layer of sand.

    On a somewhat unrelated note, one of my firemouths, wich I believe to be female has two black spots on one side instead of one, form what I have seen firemouths normally have one, in fact she is the only firemouth I have seen with two spots on one side.

    No they will not eat plants but when they breed, they will dig holes and may tear some up.
