So Far all I have tried to feed my b/n's is Zucchini and as for that they eat from the insides to the out and leave the skin alone. They eat Algea wafers and anything else I drop in there.

My Bristlenose plecs seem to be happy eating flakes at the moment, maybe it's time I tried something from the veggie list and give them a treat Very Happy

Do Bristlenose eat other fish babies because I seem to have a few babies from other tank mates appearing now?

Mine likes zuchini and algae wafers, they sometimes nibble on a shrimp pellet and they will Not touch cucumber. I can't see why they don't like the cucumber cause it looks similar to the zuchini. Fussy little plecs, aren't they Laughing

What the guys said to us was that they should eat most things as they would fall into the river naturally.

Does anybody find that if algae wafers drift in between rocks n that, they go all manky and moldy and its only when you have a little clean out that you find them...
