I looked it up on the web and they say the iridescent shark is a vegetarian
and the bigger it gets the more plant food it eats. The mouth is to small to
eat any thing other than very small fish which it will eat if them can catch
them but it mostly eats plants. The one I have has a very small mouth and
ignores small gambusia in it's tank as well as pellets of all types. i am
going to try some duckweed and se if it likes it any better,
