    flag fish vs. BBA

    Do they really eat BBA? Thinking about getting some to try out.

    Yes. Most of the time. The closer to wild you get them, the better.

    Like everyone else, they prefer dessert before dinner, so they will eat flake food and other algae sometimes before they get to the BBA, but they will graze it back. I have not seen them eating any vascular plants.

    Just to toss out my native fish talk... you know that these will also live quite prolifically outside in a stock tank in your backyard... and they reproduce nicely if you ever wanted to become everyone's supplier of FFF
