Who is eating my plants?
I have a nice 55 gallon planted aquarium, but my dwarf sags have been eaten. I can't catch any fish in the act. Could it be the corydoras cat? I also have red fin shark, swordtails, plecostomas, headstander, gouramis, clown loaches, and a variety of tetras.

Pleco's have very raspy teeth that strips the outter layer off of many plants. Swords will died if a pleco tries to eat off it, so it may be the culprit
Gouramis don't really eat vegetation, but they do tear stuff up to build their bubble nests (or for no apparent reason as in my case -_-)Foshizzle.

I had a rainbow shark, which is pretty much the same as a RTS, and they didnt eat live plants. Corys dont either.Money can't buy happiness, but it sure can pay the rent.

I have no trouble with clown loaches eating the actual plants, just uprooting them.My birdpage: http://featheredfriends.weebly.com/
