Their BN a slice of Pear?

We got a bowl full that are just slightly too hard for human consumption but might just be hard enough to not just turn to mush in the tank..?

I tried this a few months ago, and they had a nibble but then left it ......

Well, I will try again but this first run was not a winner.
For 15-20 mins the few guppy in there swarmed round it having a peck and nibble.
The male BN was in his hidy hole and didn't budge, and the female BN stayed under the bogwood.
After 90 mins I removed as it looked well soggy and starting to break up.

So far just cucumber is the favorite with alternate algae tabs and pleco tabs..
Broccoli stem was partly success
I tried carrot, (blanched and fresh) no good.
Grape no good.
Lettuce no good.
Strawberry no good..

I might give potato a go next..

I will try peas, thank you.
:alien:

*Forgot to ask, generally how long do people leave the 'veggies' in the tank before removing?
Iguess it depends on the veg in question but I leave cucumber in over night then take out, is that too early?

Ya, my fry loved peas too. I have also fed a slice of pear to the adults once. They loved it, but I never tried again cos the sight is not so pleasant, they turned brown pretty fast.

I guess it's personal choice, when I take out the next morning not much at all is left.
