They're fiesty little things! I don't want to get rid of my swords. They are my favorite plant. I love how big and full they get with the long leaves. I'm going to have to have a long talk with this gang that plants are not for eating! Sheesh.
So far it's only a few leaves. They are not dead so I was planning on leaving them in there. Like you stated Byron, I'd rather them mow down the leaves with holes already in them than start on new leaves.
I will experiment with veggies. First I will try veggies every other day along with the normal food they get when getting fed everyday (sinking granules/shrimp pellets/algae wafers). Will this be too much food? Also, with my work schedule, I can put inthe food at 8:00am and remove food at 5:30pm. They get fed their normal food at 5:30pm when I get home from work. Is 9 hours okay to keep fresh veggies inthe tank and do you still think I should feed them the sinking foods on top of the fresh veggies?
Veggies in the am is fine, remove what isn't eaten in the evening, fine. I would certainly reduce the amount of sinking food if veggies are also provided, and at first I might be inclined to not feed sinking foods unless I knew they were eating the veggies.
