I usually always put it in the same place so all of them know where to go at feeding time, I usually feed just outside there usual hiding place and keep the vedgies down with a stainless steel fork or spoon. Just make sure if you use a fork that the teeth is not to sharp. I usually poke the handle of the spoon trough the fedgies. Also try deferent vedgies as the all have have deferent likings. My male love cucomeber and my female will rather go for butternut pumpkin or tomato (fleshy bits with no pips).

how do you position the fork and vegetable in the tank? I have had a cucumber and lettuce in the tank before and I think the shiny fork is scaring the fish.

11-12-2008, 10:12 PM
If the shiny fork scare them of the try a plastic peg which have no metal pieces or a rock with a rubber band and simply tie the vedgies on the rock and drop them in, with leafy vedgies you can try and stick them in a shell but none of BN's like leafy vedgies. Sometimes if you cook the vedgies before offering it should sink by itself. up to you. Let me know how you get on. O yeh sometimes they just don't know it is food so you need to offer it to them a few times and sort of teach them that it is food.
