I was cleaning out a fish closet and ran across a package of those 14-day fish feeders. I have no idea of why I ever bought them but think I grabbed them once thinking IF an emergency should ever arise, I can drop one of those in my tank and take off. That was over 3 years ago and here they are still.

I thought last night, what the heck, let the loaches nibble of it for a bit then toss the thing out. Well, my fish swam around and around it for hours and not once took a nibble on it. Nor all day long today. I just looked in the tank and one of my loaches is sleeping on top of it!

:hmm3grin2orange: Boy, those things must really be good.

Haha that is hilarious. The fish are probably like where the heck is our normal food. She is giving us old food now oh no!!!!!!!! I can't believe the clown loaches didn't destroy it lol.... It must not be kosher

Lol, I always wondered about those. Now I know they don't work. That would have been the best photo.

good to know. I was considering those as an alternative to having my neighbor babysit for me while I'm away for 10days

Could it be due to mine being 2 years old? LOL I've heard before they make a mess of your tank but I knew I'd be here to take them out so give it a whirl. I tossed it out already.
