|I know this is CRAZY...|
Got a better camera, but the nutty fish won't cooperate.
Okay, FP doesn't have a profile on the 4 line pims. I've done a little digging with google. On at least 3 sites, I've noticed them as omnivores; and at least one other says straight carnivore. Shinigami, what do you know about their eating habits? I've seen both of the plecs eating zucchini. BUT my hubby thinks the pims are finishing the zucchini when the lights are out and no-ones there to witness. I've never seen the pims eat any veggies I put in the tank, or the any of plants in the tank. I have as I said earlier watched them eat the algae wafers, but those have as much protein as it does vegetable matter. Any one with knowledge, don't be shy. Give me info please!

Hmmm, it's possible, but the only way to know for sure is see it. Pims probably won't eat live plants, but they might eat zuchinni or anything else that might be less leafy. If I had to guess though, the plecs are probably getting a good chunk of the zuchinni if you've seen them eat and haven't seen the pims eat any.

My husband was right! I just saw both of the smaller pims tag the zucchini.
