Put a piece of nice fresh organic zucchini in for my male Bristlenose.
To my surprise he would not even look at it. He kicked it around a few times but not a nibble.
Has anybody else had that experience with zucchini ????
What is is a sure fire vegetable to give him ?????

Up until now I have mainly been feeding them different types of wafers as they say that they are a complete diet.

I did not know that. I have seen go for flakes that I feed the other fish but only occasionally.

Fry only seem to have two purposes in life, eat and grow.
Be happy; if they stop eating then you know something is going wrong.
Good luck with the little kids.

i use 3 to 4 whole zucchini when i feed all my tanks of BN each breeding group gets 1/4 of a zucchini and the fry tanks get a 1/2 or if its a small zucchini i will put a whole one the the tank sliced in half long ways. i put it in on monday morning and take it out tues nite and most of the time there is not much left to remove.

Hi thanks;
I thought garlic would help. After-all they use it a great deal in making fish food.
I will try it tonight.
Marty cheers
