Great resource (especially for a beginner like me)! mine like lettuce, spinach, courgette(or zucchini as we know it here), cucumber, carrots, apples (not really, but my otocinclus love them)!honeydew melon and cantaloupe melon but I will now try a few others on the list!

Don't forget the SQUASH. Lol My BN Prefer Squash before anything! I can place any other food in with the squash but the squash is always eaten first (scoop seeds out) weigh down with paperclip and sinker attached!

New to community, just got my first BN, love watching it move around, was not sure what to feed it, had alge in my tank but now it's all gone! (in less than 2 days) So i did not want him to starve, great list of foods, thanks!
