They eat plants? o-o He must be starved if he's doing that.
"When young it naturally feeds on algae, crustaceans, insects, small worms. As it matures it eats less and less algae. In the aquarium, it accepts most prepared sinking foods; algae/spirulina/kelp foods should be included. Frozen bloodworms, shrimp; live worms, insect larvae, brine shrimp. Vegetable matter such as zucchini, yam, cucumber may be offered."
Usually by the time commons are full grown they're more carnivores than vegetarians.

3 lovely male betta still keep me company.
