Not really. They clean parasites and dead tissue off of fish lol. They do get any pellets or flakes that fall to the bottom though.

Yep they will pretty much eat anything. Mine swims up to get some food. He also takes lots of food from the bottom. He also piles it up near his mouth!

I wish I could get some...... but my fish eat them. Watch out with that sea apple. Very interesting but very dangerous. Good Luck!!!!!
