I put a couple of small downoi in my planted 55g community tank, and they were both eaten up within a few days! If anything, my fish are overfed (both top and bottom feeders), so I don't think the issue is that someone was really hungry... I just think someone finds downoi delicious! Here's a list of tank occupants, who do you think might be the downoi eater?

fancy guppies
baby albino bristlenose
bolivian rams
yoyo & polkadot loaches
ghost shrimp
nerite & trumpet snails

I'd like to get some more downoi, and perhaps put them in a different tank, but since it's kind of expensive I want to make sure that I don't put the plant in with salad eaters again!

Thanks in advance for any opinions and educated guesses!

Yeah I think they were eaten, because there was no "melt", they just got progressively smaller and smaller over the course of a few days.

My guess would either be the loaches or the rams... but I never actually saw anything mess with the plants.
