Yeah I think my Gourami is eating mine too. The weird thing is its only the fully developed leaves that get eaten. The rest are left to grow. Very interesting.
I'm turning fish keepers to bichir keepers one victim at a time :3
Huh yours only touch the fully grown? Mine ate the tops off the new growth at one point but so far they've left the current batch of new growth alone. Might trim the stems sooon though.

That's the unfortunate thing about this hobby. You do get a lot of that with the shops who just don't care because the mentality is "Oh it's just fish". That's why it is up to us to try to be better than that and teach better than that too.

And again, I just love that video of Queen interacting with you. She almost looks dog-like just without the overwhelming enthusiasm and drool.
It is. I don't often buy fish from there since their stock usually doesn't suit me but all the same. You should see their bird area...they just have raised pillar like pedestals and the birds wander freely around. All their birds are hand raised too. It's an amazing experience when you walk in. Also that's great to hear.
Thank you. I love it when she does that. It's just special to me to have that kind of relationship + interaction. It's pretty special in general to have a fish that probably got wild caught in Africa living in my living room XD
