    Everyday I am able to see my Glosso being uprooted by someone.

    I have 5 Denisoni (about 5 inches long) and 4 SAEs in that tank. I wonder who is the culprit :confused:

    From Arizona Aquatic Gardens on Redline Sharks:

    I've had several SAEs and never had them go for plants. The Denisonis would be the main suspects.

    Uprooting is a different issue than eating it.

    SAE are long and strong fish. They can easily browse the glosso lightly, but when taking off, a flash of their tail is all it takes............

    Any strong fish can do the same.

    I have kept both SAE and Denisoni alongwith a glosso bed. While I have seen the Denisonis going for the bed but the biggest effect on the glossos was from the SAE. SAEs definitely grazer (for BBA!!) and in the proceess many a times accidentally (but not intentionally) uproots glossos or even other foreground plants like Hair Grass
