Red eared slider eat guppy grass?


I have a 75g with a turtle topper w/ 6" male RES. I want to breed designer guppys in the tank as a food source and to breed. Ideally guppy grass would be great to ensure fry survive.Will my turtle eat it all though?

Right now he munches on the Giant duckweed and regular duckweed. He does not touch the java moss and moss balls do okay. I have tried numerous plants to no avail.


Is there a site that can show me plants that work with this messy, but cute turtle.

My turtle ate anything that went in the tank, even tried my son's finger a couple times. If fish tried to hide, he would try to move smaller rocks (sometimes successfully) and get them. I tried breeding, but found it much easier to go the the LFS and get feeders.

do you think lucky bamboo will not be eaten if hung on a riparium suction? He already tore one apart getting to an unID'ed plant.

I am going through every plant combination possible...
