No, not true. There is no fish that will eat another fishes poo.

They sure do create a lot of it though. Be prepared :)

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.

Never heard of it being a "garbage fish" but the only reason I could think that is because they create a lot of waste haha! be prepared for seeing lots of poop! I have a pleco and I picked up his cave to get a good vaccuming done....and wow! He's called spike but also I call him my little poo:)
