So, I have a school of nine Rosy barbs and they are doing great. The only "issue" I have with them is that they eat absolutely everything. :K
-I had several lettuce leaves in the tank weighed down for my CAE... They ate these all overnight (they even picked it off the filter)
-I tried Cucumber for my CAE, they ate this too (but much slower)
-I also added some algae pellets that someone gave me to see if my CAE was interested (as I see her scouting for algae still) and before she so much as looks at them, they eat the pellets. Grrr...
-I added a good amount of MTS to the tank and, within two minutes, one of my females swims up and picks one off the ground and eats it. >:K (I found a shell from a larger one the next day and I haven't seen any of them in days; hopefully they are under the substrate but I doubt it)
I want to add anacharis to the tank but they eat it faster than it can grow.... (seriously, overnight they shred every leaf and they even eat into the stem of the plant until it looks like a fish skeleton.... Poor plants.... At least they don't eat the others.... Yet. :/)
Will they stop eating so much when they are adults? ^^; Or is there a way to train them not to eat certain stuff? (their profile should be updated to say what pigs they are. :P)
Also, what else might I try for my CAE that they won't eat in two seconds? (She is not as nearly of an aggressive eater like the Rosys)
