Sprout eating culprit?


Someone keeps eating the new leaves from my e. tenellus runners. Lol actually I don't mind much because who ever it is, is helping out with the trimming.

suspect list:

1 ghost shrimp
10 amano shrimp
6 Cori Sterbai
2 clown loach
9 rummynose tetra
3 Ishimaki Snails (Clithon retropictus)

I think it's one of the shrimp, but I haven't caught anyone in the act yet.

Been reading here that rummy noses munch on plants too.

I have some rummy nose that nip a little as my bacopa and HC. Not nearly as destructive to my plants as my Koi Angels were, which are now serving time at my LFS...

My guess is your rummy nose are the guilty party.
