I agree, though it should be changed to omnivorous rather than herbivorous. Fry are not notably more herbivorous in the aquarium, but they appear to do better if fed with a diet less strict in crude protein, so I agree in that respect.
Wild specimens of this genera, notably, often have gut contents comprised almost entirely of stonefly/mosquito/caddisfly larva, so it's worth mentioning at the very least that they have a meatier bent. Again, I agree that they should be periodically fed vegetable fare, but it's misleading to refer to them as herbivorous.

The aquarist is one who must learn the ways of the biologist, the chemist, and the veterinarian.
