Plant-eating Kribs

Post by grottosandfins »

My kribensis live in one of the caves I make, but just outside the cave entrance, I placed some nice plants that I thought would provide good cover for the fry. HOWEVER, the kribs are apparently unappreciative of my efforts and are dining on their plants. Are there any plants that they won't eat?

Hey Grotto,

Well, short of plastic, there are not too many suggestions! Sometimes when you put a plant in front of their dwelling, they mow it down, because they can't see. It is important that they see the entire area and if a plant is in the way, down it will come.
