we call courgettes Zucchinis just for any aussies out there who are confused Smile

and def cucumber as it doesnt foul filters anywhere near as badly and its closer to algae in nutritional value (i.e. it has very low nutritional value Laughing )

Cuc all the way here...it may not have as much nutrient value as the Zucchini, but if supplemented with other quality foods, the fish will thrive...

I think its just what your BNs prefer. My adults prefer it blanched while my juvies won't touch it. They prefer it raw.
