    here isnt anything u can do. in the wild gourmais eat plants so pet gurmais eat plants. there is a certain plant that fish do not eat...

    what plant is that and how safe is it for the fish?

    they have stuff at petsmart that you spray on the plant and its supposed to create a scent that keeps them from eating it for a month or so.

    not quite sure, perhaps you might want to put some plastic plants instead.
    Best of luck.

    Try a bit of spinich tied to a rock in the tank they should eat that instead of your plants, works on my green sevrums.

    hmmm, not a bad idea, im going to try that one, the reason why i want the real plants is because of how good they are with the oxygen and carbon dioxide thing. i have an airator and all but the plants also have a nice look.

    Well im trying the idea for putting the vegies on the rock, though is it safe to use rubber bands?
