    I have a 60L Biorb set up, planted aswell as fake plants. In it I have Dalmation Mollies, balloon sailfin molly, rummy nose tetras, cardinal tetras, cherry barbs, and Ottos.

    My Mollies and Platys are feeding on the Pleco multi-wafers that i put in for the ottos. Is this ‘normal’ behavior? I feed them every other day, as advised by my aquatic supplier.

    Thanks

    Hi there mattcarr,
    apart from the fact that the species you mention are not really compatible due to very different needs concerning pH and hardness, yes it is normal behavior. Many members of the family Poecilidae (Garman, 1895) do require a substancial amount of vegetable matter in their diet. I am quite sure that’s what they are looking for in those wafers.
    The advice of your aquatic supplier is a good one. Feeding every other day plus an extra day without feeding every other week sounds good.
    Regards
    R.
