For me, they literally ate everything. Even moss. When I got them it was a fish only tank. I bought a school of 20 of them about 4 years ago. I tell you. With a hardscape only tank. A big pack of those things looked actually pretty amazing. Very tight schoolers. Over the years with filter failures, heater failures, tank moves and what not I lost most of them. Several I'm convinced to old age. Luckily I eventually found a home for the last 5. Some lady that I don't believe is on this site. No planted tanks just a house full of cycled fish only tanks so I felt like they at least went to a place they could live out their days. I turned down a couple Craigslist people when they asked stuff like "do they need a filter or can they just go in a regular goldfish bowl. Lol. Best of luck. Try Craigslist. There are actually quite a few hobbyists in this town, most of them just don't post online much.
