It's because they are messy eaters. They will leave food bits about and that will cause high nutrient levels leading to high nitrate levels. Even on a normal tank without "messy eaters", expect 10-20% weekly water changes in order to keep your parameters in check and add the trace elements back into the tank that are needed. (trace elements come in salt mix)
