In the Wild Herbivorous fish eat only Plant and Algae, They don’t eat smaller animals or meat in the wild. I kind of see questions like what do fish eat. Especially fish in the wild.
Wild Herbivorous Fish do eat Plant, Algae and sometimes substrate, wood. These kind of Fish mostly have flat teeth or a beak that helps them in feeding on the plant and algae, which kind of make it easy for them because since they have a flat beak or teeth they use it to pull off the Algae and plant they want to eat.
