I feed a variety of vegetables to my Bristlenoses and normally they're a bit shy about starting to eat but they go straight for the broccoli when I put it in and really munch their way through it. Anybody else use it?

I have tried mine on blanched stalks, but they were not that keen on them, Sad even rubbed in garlic they were half half hearted at best.

I use the florets as you say they aren't that keen on the stalks that's always the last part left. I usually just save a few pieces from my dinner plate and feed that to them. There's never any any left to go bad in the tank so that hasn't been a problem

Methinks that revisiting the humble Brassica may well be worth the effort Smile
