I know that this has nothing to do with P's (actually that's where it starts tho). Picked up some feeders for the RB (I only get him a few every 2 months or so since I know they are not good nutritionally, but they are good to get him some exercise). Got "comets" this time. While he eyes them to decide which one to eat first I noticed that they started pecking at stuff on the gravel. Does anyone know if they eat the poop of other fish?

I know that that's kinda gross, but I have another tank with 6 neon tetras, 4 pristella tetras and a pleco that is too low for my vaccuum to clean (going to put a slop sink in the basement in a few weeks and drill a hole thru the closet floor so that the vaccuum will work) and there is alot of pleco poop in there. Was going to move a couple of the comets into that tank if they did eat the stuff, just to get the tank a little cleaner!

If they don't, does anyone know of another fish that I could put in there to do that?
