View Full Version : BARBS feeding...?

hello hello !

I own a tank which hosts a great barbs community, all healthy and acting super happy.

i am already feeding these amazing fish with some good quality flake food, frozen brine shrimps and some blood worms (which are everytime an event for my little fellas when they see these red spots coming into the water...!:shappy: ).

One time, i tried to feed my dear friends cucumber, as i have read that they would probably like it...but nothing happened there.:sconfused:

So, wanting and willing to please my freshwater friends and suprise them with some new food, i was wondering:

what other variety of food would be great for them to have?So they can smile and wave :19: at me when i am approching the tank...?
i was even thinking of giving them some fruit flies...?

let me know what will be your ideas guys!

:ssmile:thanks a lot!

Frozen peas which have been thawed and the outer skin peeled off are always a treat.

Try some cucumber again, it take them a while to get the idea to eat it.
