Rostrata - Preferred Foods?

Hi All,

I recently aquired 3 Botia Rostrata and was wondering about their feeding needs and habits. Are they omnivores or carnivores? So far they seem to love worms, but ignore frozen brine shrimp. Will they benefit from some veggies in their diet (cukes, lettuce, etc)? Thanks for any help.
