Fussy Bristlenoses are turning up their Bristlenoses at the raw spinach I'm offering...
should I parboil it and try again?

They may eat zucchini if you boil it a couple minutes so it will sink and be softer for them. Only leave it in the tank for overnight, tho, or it will turn to mush and mess up your water.

The one in with my Neons loved zucchini, even without parboiling it.
The one with the Lemons didn't touch it.

I'm trying spinach becuase I want them to have a varied diet.

Maybe try lettuce? Is that a possibility?

Fussy little #@%^s.

Thanks Drum,
gotta do some shopping tomorrow, I'll see if I can track some down.

But - raw or lightly cooked?
