Hey everyone, I'm fairly a noob at B/N's and I was wondering how often can I feed my B/N's zuchinni,both juvi's and adults?

Anything adults eat will be taken from the fry stage.

As Jagtazman has said they woild eat it everyday, but a variety of food is much better. Most veg will be accepted, some more so than others, and harder veg can be blanched to soften it a little.Always be wary of some breaking down quickly, zuchinni often has to be removed after a few hours, while many can be left longer.

zuchinni is known for fouling filters and other equipment if left in for too long. When i feed it i leave it in for no longer than 5-6 hours and then remove it. For this reason i only feed small portions to make sure im not wasting too much of it.

Cucumber on the ohter hand can be left in for longer, 24 hours is ok, def not longer than 48 though or you will have a cloudy water bacteria bloom. Not overly dangerous but looks poor!
